Immigration and Identity Health Humanities Portrait Teaching Guide
This Health Humanities Portrait-- Immigration and Identity-- is intended to help learners identify structural issues and other relevant social information to improve equitable migrant healthcare. The portrait includes the study of social, political, and historical forces that contribute to migration, as well as the social and cultural practices that impact identity and embodiment (mental and physical health and ability) and belonging. Exploring these topics contributes to a deeper understanding regarding relationships among migrants—the different social and familial bonds that are formed through displacement. The HHP focuses on the way they tell stories as well as the stories they tell.
