Butterflies and hurricanes pay no heed to borders, but humans will risk their lives to cross them, build walls to mark them, and kill to defend them. At a moment when the number of displaced persons is projected to rise steeply over the next 30 years, we cannot escape questions of borders and identities in our writing. Please join Ron Silliman's Writing across Borders class as they explore citizenship, residency, place-making, exile, and heritage through various modes and genres of writing. This is a free event open to the public.
