The Line Crossed Us: New Directions in Critical Border Studies 

University of Lethbridge, June 14-15, 2019 


What a great conference! So many fantastic activists, artists, and early-career scholars joined us for two days in the heart of Siksikaitsitapii (Blackfoot) territory.  

We were honored to present a free public film screening of the film El Muro | The Wall (2017), directed by Ramon & Rosalva Resendiz and produced in collaboration with the Lipan Apache/Ndé' Band of Texas.  Watch the trailer here and the whole film here.

Next step?  An edited collection of some of the many outstanding papers and presentations from the conference.  Athabasca University Press is going to help us get this work out there.  Stay tuned!
