Migrant Deaths, from Southern Arizona to South Jersey - Presented by Jessie K. Finch, Ph.D., Assistant Professor of Sociology, Stockton University

In 2016, Dr. Jessie K. Finch co-edited the book Migrant Deaths in the  Arizona Desert: La Vida No Vale Nada (Life Has No Worth) published by the University of Arizona Press. The volume confronts migrant deaths and disappearances in the U.S.-Mexico borderlands and  reflects on the startling realities of death, migration, and public  policy. Beyond the border in Southern Arizona, however, how do these same realities affect the value of migrant’s lives in South  Jersey? Dr. Finch will explore migration issues, from community  responses, government policy, definitions of citizenship, and the role of the arts and human expression in response to state violence. 

This event is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served
