The Border Project continues to examine borders through interdisciplinary perspectives throughout the month of October with musical events and intellectual lectures. The project embarks on a campus-wide interrogation of border issues, particularly those surrounding the U.S.-Mexico border, drawing from the humanities, social sciences, journalism, and visual arts (all housed in Wilkinson College). Take a look at the October schedule below.
