Diaspora is the Oswego theme this year.
It means a lot of things to me but check out the official definition. I am a displaced Lithuanian and there are no other Lithuanians that I can find 🙁 However, but when I read about diaspora and I see others going through the same thing, it makes me feel better.
Today I wanted to share what diaspora is with you and maybe you can find someone from your culture 🙂
I am going to this poetry reading next week to learn a bit more about it. If you are American generally you can say at least some part of your family feels dispersed.
