Join this special event with celebrated anthropologist Carlos G. Vélez-Ibáñez in conversation with other borderlands anthropologists Roberto Alvarez, Patricia Zavella, Joe Heyman, and Luis Plascencia to discuss his book and the ever-evolving work of transborder anthropology.
When: Wednesday, March 10, 2021, 6:30 p.m. MST. This is a free online event, but registration is required. Go here to register.
Reflections of a Transborder Anthropologist, Carlos G. Vélez-Ibáñez latest book, shows how both Vélez-Ibáñez and anthropology have changed and formed over a fifty-year period. Throughout, he has worked to understand how people survive and thrive against all odds. Vélez-Ibáñez has been guided by the burning desire to understand inequality, exploitation, and legitimacy, and, most importantly, to provide platforms for the voiceless to narrate their own histories.
This event is co-hosted by Open Arizona.
