Humanizando la Deportación/Humanizing Deportation


Humanizando la Deportación/Humanizing Deportation

Tuesday, November 14, 3:30 pm, at Shrem Museum

This digital storytelling project aims to make visible the range of humanitarian issues that proliferate in our current regime of mass human displacement. This UC-MEXUS funded collaboration between UC Davis and El Colegio de la Frontera Norte (with additional participation of colleagues from other institutions, including UC Berkeley) has assisted community members in producing a bilingual open access archive of personal stories about deportation (http://humanizandoladeportacion.ucdavis.edu/en/). The project team will present this archive, discussing the methodological, ethical and political issues that they have encountered in its creation.

Featured Guests:
