Event Overview

How do you navigate borders in your own practice or research? The New Media Caucus seeks to bring together artists and scholars to critically engage relevant topics.

Borders and boundaries, both tangible and ephemeral, are closely tied to the ways in which humanity has always made sense of the world, and of its place in it.

Our current moment is one in which this certainty is being undermined as many borders are being challenged and contested.

Borders can be mental, physical, geographical, political, social, ethical, legal, economic, environmental, digital, real, imagined, visceral, and emotional.

Registration is required to attend the Symposium. The deadline for registration is September 13, 2019.

Please also consider joining students, faculty and the Ann Arbor community for the Penny Stamps Speaker Series on the evening of Thursday, Sept. 19.
