Given the time we are in now, when ultra-nationalism, xenophobia, hate, and racism continue to deepen and harden in the US and across the world, the need for intellectual and creative efforts that challenge Othering is more urgent than ever.

This event aims to respond to the urgent challenges of Othering that we face today.
