Communities In Transit: ‘Humanizing Deportation’
Monday, September 16, 2019,5:30 pm - 7:30 pm EDT
In public debates about migration and border policy, the voice of migrants is rarely heard. “Humanizing Deportation” is an oral history project documenting the experience of deportees to Mexico.
Housed at the University of California Davis, this video archive visualizes and documents the lived experience and diverse histories of deportees who have spent a significant portion of their lives in the United States. Dr. Robert Irwin, professor of Spanish at the University of California Davis and project coordinator of the Humanizing Deportation project, and University of California Santa Cruz Professor Camilla Hawthorne will present the project to the public.
The presentation will be followed by a discussion facilitated by faculty and community organizations. For more info on the project: http://humanizandoladeportacion.ucdavis.edu/en/
This event is free and open to the public.
