Movement across borders is an entirely common occurrence in modern life. How and why do people transcend borders, and why is the movement of some bodies disproportionately monitored, regulated, and prohibited? What role does the media play in creating a rhetoric fear about bodies imagined as threatening or dangerous? There is a pressing need to consider what protections are possible for those most vulnerable to anti-immigrant sentiment. Heather Silber Mohamed (Political Science) researches in the field of Latino politics, immigration policy, and media. Anita Fabos (International Development, Community, and Environment) works on issues related to refugees and forced migration. Together, these two Clark University professors will offer their expertise as a springboard for this community focused dialogue.
