Fall Quarter 2015 Info

Friday November 13, 12-2 pm

This roundtable features a group of diverse scholars, activists, students, and artists discussing the key themes of our first year for the Mellon program in Comparative Border Studies. The forum will reflect on questions such as:

  • How is the border a human rights issue?
  • How are border issues connected to questions of citizenship and race, in different regions and for various communities?
  • What does solidarity related to borders and border violence look like?
  • How can we link struggles against border policing across national, regional, and continental boundaries?

The presentations will be followed by Q&A and discussion with the audience. For more information, please contact:smaira@ucdavis.edu.
