This three-day-long conference welcomes leading scholars, artists, and journalists with expertise in border issues to campus for public and free panels, lectures, and engagement with memory and art. The Thursday keynote presentation features Francisco Cantú, former border patrol agent whose memoir, A Line Becomes a River: Dispatches from the Border, won the 2018 Los Angeles Times Book Award. The conference also offers space for student presentations of their research and creative activity on this topic.
