CLAS and Forced Migrations Screening: Cartel Land (2015)

Join the Forced Migrations workshop for a screening of Cartel Land, a gripping 2015 documentary about the Mexican drug war, cartels and vigilante groups along the border. Prof. Beatriz Magaloni will make introductory remarks. 
The Forced Migrations workshop, co-advised by Prof. Lisa Surwillo (Iberian and Latin American Cultures) and Prof. Jenny Martinez (Law), provides a space for students and faculty to engage with research questions at the intersection of empire, marginal cultures, slavery, and human rights. Our frame is forced migration, often with an oceanic emphasis. We discuss texts and issues in history and thought from early modernity (the birth of European transatlantic empires) to the present (in which refugee crises are exerting a forceful impact on the global political order). We aspire to draw together scholars and students of law, archive, gender, race and and more from the Anglophone, Hispanophone, Lusophone and non-Western world who do not often speak with one another.
