The Modotti Family: Immigrant Transnationalism before Social Media

October 21 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Held virtually on Zoom

Social media makes it easy to create spaces and maintain connections with family, friends, and organizations across international boundaries. We might wonder, how did people do this before social media? What did global networking and space-making look like before social media? This presentation will reveal how the Modotti family, despite rarely residing together in one country, maintained a common identity based on shared spaces crafted from correspondence and international political involvement between the 1920s and 1940s. Amid immigration restrictions and heightened surveillance, and well before social media, the Modottis exemplify how la famiglia transcended boundaries.
