Archaeology of the Undocumented

September 3, 2015 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

The U.S.-Mexico border is in the news and the subject of great, and at times heated, debate. What is largely lost in the headlines is a vital long-term, nuanced understanding of the modern immigrant experience. Jason De León is assistant professor of anthropology at the University of Michigan and director of the Undocumented Migration Project. For the past five years, De León has used path-breaking forensic, archaeological, and ethnographic research to examine the trek north through harsh desert, putting a human face on the real life and death struggles of migrants. Hear tragic and exhilarating stories as narrated by De León’s compelling research from one of the most significant, dangerous, and clandestine places in the world. This is the inaugural talk for the George McJunkin Lecture, recognizing the African American cowboy who discovered bison bones in Folsom, New Mexico, that eventually made archaeological history.
