One Book Brown Bag Talk Series - Intersecting Borders and Bridges: Mobility as Home in Twenty-first Century Literature
One Book Brown Bag Talk Series, Cosponsored by FacHouse. All talks are from 12-12:50 p.m. in SH-110.
“Intersecting Borders and Bridges: Mobility as Home in Twenty-first Century Literature” | Michael Moreno and Lina Pittser, English
This presentation explores how works of literature both dislocate and redefine twenty-first century constructions of borders and geographical crossroads in determining the meaning of home and the sense of place. As a global phenomenon, how does migration impact the ways in which communities are (re)formed and transnational perspectives of power and agency shifted? What is the role of literature in articulating this process? Our discussion will include Papers: Stories by Undocumented Youth and Mbue’s Behold the Dreamers among other narratives, both domestic and international.
Students may pick up free copies of Behold the Dreamers and Papers: Stories of Undocumented Youth at Holman Library
