Science Café: An Archaeology of Migration

Wednesday, January 24, 2018
5:30-7:30 PM
Off Campus Location
What are the stories of contemporary Latin American migration, and how do we uncover them? What can these stories tell us about borders, their impact, and the struggles of many families to find a new life? How can such stories inform policy and/or political action? Jason De Leon of the U-M Department of Anthropology directs the Undocumented Migration Project (UMP), a long-term study of clandestine border crossing that uses a combination of ethnographic, archaeological, and forensic approaches to understand this phenomenon in the Sonoran Desert of Southern Arizona, Northern Mexican border towns, and the southern Mexico/Guatemala border.

Science Cafés provide an opportunity for audiences to discuss current research topics with experts in an informal setting. Hors d’oeuvres at 5:30 p.m.; program 6:00-7:30 p.m. Seating is limited - come early.
