PLACE TALKS (post facto)

Presented a visual talk entitled "When the River Crosses You, and Other Stories from the Dried Up Rio Grande", as part of the PLACE TALKS series at the Prelinger Library in San Francisco.  My talk was about the oppression that takes place on the U.S.-Mexico border.  I presented on November 9th, two days after Trump was elected president, so it all felt particularly apt and pertinent to the present moment.

Some questions I explored:  What is the relationship between the control of people and the control of water? How does the flow of a river speak to the flow of migrants?  How does the control of the Rio Grande and the history of water colonization relate to the current oppression of border crossing people on the U.S.-Mexico border?
