Start Date: 3/25/2020Start Time: 2:00 PM
End Date: 3/25/2020End Time: 3:00 PM
Event Description:


This event has been cancelled.





This book explores
 the cultural and creative lives of the largely young undocumented Mexican population in New York City since September 11, 2001.

Inspired by a dialogue between the landmark works of Paul Gilroy and Gloria Anzaldúa, it develops a new analytic framework - the Atlantic Borderlands - which bridges Mexican diasporic experiences in New York City and the black diaspora:  not as a comparison, but in recognition that colonialism, interracial, and interethnic contact through trade, migration, and slavery are connected via capitalist economies and technological developments.

Melissa Castillo Planas is Assistant Professor in Lehman College’s English Department.
