What Language Does Your State Speak?

What Language Does Your State Speak? | Immigration & Migration | Scoop.it

Ellen Van Daele's curator insight, March 20, 2015 7:34 PM

This map shows the main languages, other than English, in all the states. The fist map shows that the second language in almost all states is Spanish, which is logical since Mexico borders the United States in the south. The map with the second languages other than Spanish had some more variation, with European languages like German and French, and then some Asian languages spread across the country. 

 

This article was very interesting because it shows different levels of immigration to the United States. It shows the main immigration from Mexico to the US and the other immigration flows from Asia and Europe.

The Geography Of Aging: Why Millennials Are Headed To The Suburbs | Newgeography.com | Immigration & Migration | Scoop.it

But a close look at migration data reveals that the reality is much more complex. The millennial “flight” from suburbia has not only been vastly overexaggerated, it fails to deal with what may best be seen as differences in preferences correlated with life stages.

Isabella El-Hage's curator insight, March 18, 2015 11:59 AM
This article links to Unit Two through "social consequences brought by migration". When people think or talk about migration between Mexico and Texas the first thing that pops up in their head is usually, "gangs", or "dangerous", or even "violence". Stephen Falk, a German photographer, started a project called LA FRONTERA, to help rebuild the image of migration from Mexico to Texas, through pictures of local artists near the 2,000 mile long border with their art. His exhibit of photographs has been shown in Mexico, California, Washington D.C., New York, and Germany. I think his efforts to change the view of migration from Mexico is commendable, and his photographs portray that there is beauty at the borders.
