Session Information

Description: Migrations are a central aspect of contemporary life in the Americas, and developments at the United States southern border and in Venezuela have made migration a key issue in political and cultural discourse and in the mass media. The last decade has also seen a proliferation of works of art that represent the figure of the migrant and the experience of migration. Panelists examine the ways in which contemporary works mediate the phenomena of migration for their audiences.
