Dr. Amy Shansami, Sociology at IU Indianapolis, has a chapter in the newly published anthology, Home: Multilingual Funds of Knowledge Parent Stories. The Anthology project is spearheaded by IU Columbus Education Associate Professor Laura Liu to foster community sharing of multicultural, multilingual funds of knowledge, resulting in an anthology of 15 parent-written stories. The publication features children’s books written and designed by parents and families sharing their stories in their home language and English. One of the stories featured in the anthology is Picture Day: A Nigerian American Story written by Dr. Shansami and her family.  The Anthology is already having an impact that extends beyond campus.
