Undocumented Art and Activism: A Dialogue with Natalia Deeb-Sossa and Aida Lizalde

Currently, there are approximately 7000-13,000 undocumented students enrolled in universities throughout the United States. What are some of the challenges that undocumented students face in pursuing and completing their college education? How does art help teach about the unique challenges the undocumented community has to face? How might art be mobilized as a strategic tool of resistance and an effective means of refusal to abide by state policies and legislation that deny undocumented immigrants a path to US citizenship? The dialogue between Natalia Deeb-Sossa and Aida Lizalde will address these questions, and the relationship between art, activism, and social change.

Aida Lizalde (born in Saltillo, Coahuila Mexico) is a formerly undocumented childhood arrival and a Studio Art major currently attending UC Davis.

Natalia Deeb-Sossa is an associate professor in the Chicana/o Studies Department at UC Davis.
