Highlighted Project 2012-2013: B/ordering Violence: Boundaries, Indigeneity, and Gender in the Americas
In September 2012 we launched the UW Mellon Sawyer Seminar on B/ordering Violence: Boundaries, Indigeneity, and Gender in the Americas. Building upon the work of a multi-year, multidisciplinary collective, this year’s UW Sawyer Seminar undertakes an interdisciplinary exploration of Borderlands, understood as the contact zones, imagined geographies, and discourses that produce both order and violence. We have brought impressive artists and scholars to campus from through out the U.S. and Peru to give excellent presentations about Borderlands.
These activities have been generously funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and co-sponsored by the Latin American & Caribbean Studies program, the Jackson School of International Studies, the Simpson Center for the Humanities, and the Institute for the Study of Ethnicity, Race, & Sexuality (WISER).
