Immigrant Entrepreneurship: Opportunity for Doing Participatory Research in the Hartford Community, Spring, 2014
 
Join a team of Trinity Students (for .5 or 1.0 credits) who will be investigating immigrant entrepreneurship in the Greater Hartford area this spring in partnership with a new community initiative called International Hartford. Students will be drawn from existing classes, senior thesis researchers, and those interested in independent study on this topic. Students should have some cross-cultural experience (in Hartford or elsewhere), be interested in economic development or immigration, be able to follow directions but work independently, and possess some basic computer skills (like familiarity with word and basic excel spreadsheets). Prior ethnographic fieldwork experience or training is desirable (although some training will be provided). Students will work through Hartford community networks to identify (and 'map') small business potential among groups of immigrant and refugee craftspeople in the greater Hartford area. Activities will include interviewing immigrants and archiving this information toward developing programs that will foster business potential by providing training and providing access to small loans for refugees and immigrants interested in transforming their crafts or skills into small businesses. Interested students should contact Professor Janet Bauer (janet.bauer@trincoll.edu) before December 20th with a short paragraph about their interest/background and be available for a brief interview either the week of Dec. 16th, 2013 or the week of January 21st, 2014.
