Nathan Sayre: "Conservation and Violence in the US-Mexico Borderlands"

When: Mon., Nov. 28, 1:10-2:15 p.m. 2011

"Border towns," wrote Richard Brautigan, "bring out the worst in both countries, and everything that is American stands out like a neon sore in border towns." UC Berkeley Associate Professor of Geography Nathan Sayre looks through the eyes of Arizona-New Mexico border residents, whose livelihoods and conservation efforts have been hampered by US fortification policy. Sayre's lecture, "Fatal Follies of Fortification: Conservation and Violence in the US-Mexico Borderlands," takes place on Monday, Nov. 28, at 370 Dwinelle Hall (UC Berkeley). 1:10-2:15 p.m., free. 510-642-2088 or MAPerry@berkeley.edu
