JMU English Course Elevates Immigrant Stories
JMU students in Dr. Allison Fagan’s English 360 class have been working diligently and passionately for the last two spring semesters to create the Harrisonburg 360 podcast – a digital project that elevates the stories of past and present immigrants in the Shenandoah Valley. The Spring 2021 season focuses on stories of local business owners and how they were affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.
