 Building off of its hugely successful 2013 Global Social Justice Leadership Prize, the 2014 gathering aims to question, interrogate and complicate the very notion of borders from a number of intersectional, cartographical, ideological, political, cultural, and social locations.This will be a CONFERENCE –[UN]CONFERENCE! We are interested in creating conversations on emerging epistemologies, radical geographies, critical solidarities, and transgressive practices that transcend and theorize across disciplinary and academic/activist borders.Register Here
