Crossing Borders Conference: Immigration and Gender

From the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study

Crossing Borders: Immigration and Gender in the Americas
April 25–26, 2013

Our conference will explore how gender, race, and social class shape the experience of immigrants and their children in the Americas.

The event begins on Thursday evening with a performance and panel featuring Quetzal, a bilingual rock band from East Los Angeles—led by scholar-singer Martha Gonzales—that has been nominated for a 2013 Grammy Award.

The keynote speaker on Friday morning is Sonia Nazario, a Pulitzer Prize–winning journalist and author of the national best seller, Enrique's Journey.

The day's panels bring together academics and activitsts to examine changing immigration trends and the unfolding drama of crossing borders in the Americas.

The event is free and open to the public. Registration is required.
