2018 CLLAS Symposium Preliminary Schedule

Justice Across Borders: Gender, Race, and Migration in the Americas

Questions of migration, border crossings, and gender, racial and national belonging are essential components of each panel with an emphasis on Latin American and U.S. Latino realities. At a time when the aftermath of the electoral campaign and the new government highlights the depth of anti-immigrant sentiments, xenophobia and racism in the U.S., policy-makers and the public are more interested than ever in engaging issues of gender, race, migration, and belonging in Latin@ and Latin American communities.

Sponsored by the Center for Latino/a and Latin American Studies; Wayne Morse Center for Law & Politics; UO College of Arts and Sciences; and others to be named.
