    A Palestinian in New York City
    by Megha Bahree
    My portfolio is about the Palestinian community as new immigrants in New York City, with a focus on how 9/11 is affecting them (backlash continues to date) and how the Israel-Palestine situation is shaping their lives here.

    La Crise de la Republique, Divisions in French Society
    by Marjorie Conley
    The French 2002 presidential elections triggered a political earthquake that rocked the nation and the world. Although radical, Jean-Marie Le Pen and his Far Right National Front Party rallied sufficient support to oust the moderate popular Left and fracture further an already divided French society.

    The political discussions surrounding the elections and the attacks on, immigration, crime and the establsihed elite sparked debates surrounding equality in education, spatial exclusion, integration and immigration. This project examines the divisions in contemporary French society and how the nation is reflecting on these issues.
