Conference: Radars and Fences 2010

Radars and Fences III

Friday, March 12, 2010
10:00 AM – 05:00 PM

Radars and Fences 2010 will explore the production of the Israel/Palestine and Mexico/US borders, examining how they engage affects, bodies, and spatial scales. Despite their seemingly confounding specificities, it is our intention to open up a dialogue between these borders in order to enable new terms of practical and political engagement. By bringing this plurality of perspectives into dialogue around the themes of affect and space, we hope to reinvigorate critical analysis of the border in all of its (im)materialities and locations.

10-10.30 Coffee & Opening Remarks
10.30-11.15 Electronic Disturbance Theatre: Amy Sara Carroll & Ricardo Dominguez
