NEWTON

Even with the cold snap, it's hard to find a hotter topic than immigration these days.

Over the next month at the Newton History Museum, several speakers will be exploring how immigration patterns are changing dramatically and how they affect Newton and the surrounding area. The talks include:

* “Gender and Generation: Soviet Jews,” by Annelise Orleck, on Jan. 31;
* “Chinese Families, Boston Suburbs,” by Peter Kiang, Josephine Louie, and Anping Shen, on Feb. 8, and;
* “Honolulu, Los Angeles, and Boston,” by Reed Ueda, on Feb. 28.

All talks are free and begin at 7:30 p.m., with the museum opening for browsing at 7 p.m. For more information, call 617-796-1450 or visit the Newton History Museum at the Jackson Homestead online.
