The Line Crossed Us 2021: New Directions in Critical Border Studies Conference

June 10 @ 8:00 am - June 11 @ 5:00 pm

Building on the success of our first conference in June 2019, the Lethbridge Border Studies Group is hosting our virtual follow-up conference, The Line Crossed Us 2021: New Directions in Critical Border Studies, from June 10-11, 2021.

The conference brings Indigenous, settler, and migration politics and histories into conversation and focuses on early-career researchers to promote new voices and cutting-edge questions in the field of critical border studies.

Our call for papers welcomed submissions from current graduate students, emerging scholars, community researchers, and activists working on any aspect of border studies. This year approximately 70 presenters will share their research in fifteen panels over the two-day conference, including two events that will be open to the public.
