Talk to explore humanitarian crisis on U.S., Mexico border


Everard Meade, faculty director of the Trans-Border Institute at the University of San Diego, will deliver a talk, “Fates and Furies: What the Humanitarian Crisis on the U.S.-Mexico Border Teaches Us about History and Humanity, Race and Place,” at 6 p.m. Sept. 23 via Zoom.

Before the global pandemic and the mass uprisings against police violence, a humanitarian crisis along the U.S.-Mexico border exposed the vulnerability of particular communities to suffering and death at the hand of policymakers and law enforcement. The experiences of displaced communities on the border, including both northbound refugees from Central America and south bound deportees from communities across the U.S., reveal three critical lessons for understanding our present: armed conflicts leave multi-generational legacies of harm, U.S. immigration politics are more about integration than immigration, and networks of solidarity that transcend the border are the only viable path towards a more democratic and inclusive future.

This lecture is part of events centered on the participatory art exhibition, “Hostile Terrain 94.”

Registration is required. Zoom information will be sent upon filling out the submission form.
