In conjunction with Crossings, our 2017-18 film series on migration and the Mediterranean, the CLRC hosts an informal, brown bag seminar on the borders of Europe and the United States, with a focus on the border as barrier of and portal to the Global North and the ways in which migrants contest the borders the state creates.

This seminar is free and open to the public, but attendees are kindly asked to RSVP here in order to access the pre-circulated readings.
