Thursday, February 21, 2019 - 12:00pm

In this presentation, Dr. Alex E. Chávez draws on his book, "Sounds of Crossing: Music, Migration, and the Aural Poetics of Huapango Arribeño"  (Duke 2017) to address how Mexican migrants voice desires of recognition and connection through performance, and the politics such desires attain amidst the transnational context of migrant deportability.
