As part of the University Libraries Faculty Book Talk series, Tabea Linhard, WU Professor of Spanish and comparative literature, and Timothy Parsons, WU Professor of history and of African and African-American studies, co-editors of “Mapping Migration, Identity, and Space” (Palgrave Macmillan), will lead a panel discussion about the book. The panel will also include two of the book’s contributors, Sara Jay of the John Burroughs School and Linling Gao-Miles, WU lecturer in International and Area Studies. The discussion will focus on the ways in which the movements of people across natural, political, and cultural boundaries shape identities that are inexorably linked to the geographical spaces they experience.
A reception will follow the discussion. Free and open to the public.
