Title: “Undocumented in Knoxville”
Abstract:My UT senior honors thesis focuses on the undocumented experience in Knoxville in light of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) policy. My objective is to present different perspectives that measure the extent to which DACA and other undocumented individuals impact the city (in economic, social, and other cultural spheres) as well as document the emotional impact on Knoxville. During a 30-minute video, I interview a variety of individuals touched by DACA and other undocumented individuals including the individuals themselves, professionals who support them, and their loved ones who are documented. I also interview individuals who discuss current policies on immigration to the U.S. The interviews, which I conduct in Spanish and English, center on real life experiences, which in turn provides a platform for a variety of voices.
