Unbordered imaginaries: Engagements across the U.S.-Mexico border

Tuesday, November 28, 2017 - 12 p.m. 2 p.m. Wallis Annenberg Hall (ANN), 106

Borders crisscross our world, drawing national boundaries and limiting the movement of people with physical structures. How do border communities live and feel these divisions? How might we reimagine borders as sites for civic engagement, today and in the future? 

USC Annenberg and USC School of Cinematic Arts welcomes you to this discussion. Our panel brings together scholars, media makers and practitioners to showcase and discuss their creative projects about transborder community engagement. 

Using the Civic Imagination, speakers will discuss and consider the role of culture to capture and share border experiences and to envision the U.S.-Mexico border as a site for exchange rather than division. 

Lunch will be served on a first come/first served basis.

This event is organized by Civic Paths and the CASM Group with support from the Office of the Provost Collaboration Fund.
