Welcome!

This student group proposes to examine scholarly research on the dynamics of transnational families, with a special emphasis on Latin America.  During the academic year 2010-2011, we will 1) establish a graduate student reading group that will examine existing and burgeoning interdisciplinary literature on transnational families; 2) host a film screening and speaker related to the U.S. border policy's effects on migrant families; and 3) convene a graduate student research workshop in which students and faculty will discuss ongoing research projects related to families negotiating life across borders.

Meetings will be held on Wednesdays in LAW 3650 from 5:30-7:30pmDinner will be provided.  Our meetings are scheduled for:

October 12, 2010

We will sponsor El Muro, a film by Greg Rainoff, which portrays the human and environmental impacts of the border wall between Playas and San Ysidro on the U.S.-Mexico border.  This film will be shown Jan. 27th, 2011 at 5pm in the McCormick Screening Room.
