Borderlines: Telling South Asia and US-Mexico Border Histories through Art and Performance

Please join us on Thursday, March 15, 2018 from 5:00 – 6:30 PM in the Seuss Room in Geisel Library. This event is free and open to the public. RSVP Here. 

The UC San Diego South Asia Initiative with co-sponsors the UC San Diego Library, Sixth College Writing Program, Eleanor Roosevelt College, the International Institute, and the Committee for the Art of the Indian Subcontinent (CAIS), San Diego Museum of Art, is pleased to present a talk and discussion with Sehba Sarwar (Voices Breaking Boundaries), Yessica Garcia-Hernandez (UC San Diego Ethnic Studies) and Sindhu Thirumalaisamy (UC San Diego Visual Arts).

The Voices Breaking Boundaries Borderlines series examines cross-cultural connections between North American and South Asian border regions. By tethering local community stories to global ones Borderlines turns the city into a metaphor for international borders to unearth complex narratives that challenge the stereotypes and misconceptions faced by migrant communities in border regions and undocumented communities in Texas

For questions, please contact the event coordinator, Serafin Raya, via email at s1raya@ucsd.edu.
