Interdisciplinary Roundtables


Crossing Boundaries/Crossing Cultures: Identity, Ethnicity, and Borderlands


Tuesday, January 24th, 2012
4:10 - 5:30 pm
Room: 302 Catt Hall

Recent scholarship in the humanities and social sciences has expanded in the area of migration, borderlands, and local identity vis-a-vis large-scale state structures or empires. This roundtable highlights the work of ISU faculty who come to this academic arena from a variety of interdisciplinary methodological and geo-political analytical frameworks. Participants will look at literary and cultural derivatives of ethnicity in Central America, ethnic tensions in the southwest of the US, borderland disputes in East Asia and Latin America, and the politics of culture in SE Europe.


Participants:
Brian Behnken, Assist. Prof., History
Xiaoyuan Liu, Professor, History
Eliza Rizo, Assist. Prof., World Languages and Cultures
Max Viatori, Assist. Prof., Anthropology
Zora Zimmerman, Assoc. Dean of LAS, English
