Migration and Narration: A panel discussion on North America’s multiple borderlands

dude with mountiesWhile border issues have been at the forefront of American news media in the last decade, the material traces and individual stories of migration across these international boundaries has largely been sidelined in the post 9/11 security climate. This discussion brings together a panel of local experts on migration and borders to present multiple perspectives on North America’s three international borderlands: Guatemala-Mexico, Mexico-U.S., and the U.S.-Canada border. The panel will address the challenges involved in writing about borders and will contextualize the complicated political and economic conditions faced by migrants both historically and today.

 

 

 

The panelists include the following speakers:

Jason de Leon University of Michigan, Assistant Professor, Department of Archeology
Tanya Basok University of Windsor, Professor, Sociology & Anthropology, Director Centre for Studies in Social Justice
Tom Klug Marygrove College, Associate Professor of History, Director of the Institute for Detroit Studies

 

This discussion takes place Saturday, Feb. 9 from 2-4 p.m. at the Art Gallery of Windsor, 401 Riverside Dr. West:
