Join Amerind scholars for a panel discussion on The Border and Its Bodies. Learn about new research on the human costs of transnational migration across the US-Mexico borderlands, including the numbers of dead, the rates of disease, the impact of incarceration, and the dangers and uncertainties of rural life along the border. The panel will explore how risk becomes embodied in the lives—and deaths— of Mexican and Central American migrants and rural residents along the U.S.-Mexico border. Free of charge. Panelists include Tom Sheridan, Randy McGuire, Jared Beatrice, Rebecca Crocker, Jason De Leon, Linda Green, Shaylih Muehlmann, María Elena Ramos Tovar, Robin Reineke, Olivia Ruiz Marrujo, Angela Soler, and Ruth Van Dyke.
