As a response to border tensions and conflicts, protest cultures have
produced new, transborder communities. Migrant rights, anti-war, feminist,
queer, and indigenous rights movements use cross-border networks,
cultural production, and digital technologies to mobilize across borders. This roundtable brings together activists and scholars from around the world to explore how borders are conceived of in different sites of struggles against racialized border violence, militarization, occupation, displacement, partition, and colonization.

Co-sponsored by the Mellon Initiative in Comparative Border Studies at UC Davis and the Manetti Shrem Museum.
