The annual Border Justice Series event, a signature offering of the master’s degree program in social justice and human rights in ASU’s New College of Interdisciplinary Arts and Sciences, is on track, and the schedule of activities, discussions and film is coming together for the 2011 affair. The three-day event runs from Wed., March 30, through Fri., April 1, and takes place on the West campus.
“Networks, Justice and the Border” focuses on the socio-political discourse which informs our immigration policy and the political alliances and cultural folkways in which people organize for migrant rights. Highlights of the event include a theatrical performance by James Garcia entitled “Performing S.B.1070”; an art exhibition by Dr. Patricia Clark, “A Traves de mi ventana IV: How to Win a Free Trip to Latin America, or It’s Happening in My Own Backyard”; roundtables on current immigration issues featuring campus student groups and leaders from local faith communities; and a scholarly panel addressing border issues internationally.
