Utilizing an intersectional approach informed by feminist theory and critical race studies, Dr. Sampaio examined the changes in immigration politics policy and its execution in the context of the current administration, paying particular attention to the simultaneous construction of Latina/o immigrants as terrorist threats (evidenced in policy debates, new legislation, and discourse surrounding the federal government) while they are actively threatened, restricted and “terrorized” by new enforcement initiatives. In the process, this research unravels seemingly neutral policies and discourse surrounding Latina/o immigrants as well as the changes to notions of citizenship, inclusion, and democracy.

Nov. 14: $PEAK OUT, Diane Jacobs, Local Artist. The $PEAK OUT project is part of a worldwide discourse to end violence against girls and women. Ms. Jacobs shared some of her previous feminist printmaking and book projects and discussed how and why she created them. Her current $PEAK OUT currency project was the highlight of the event as participants created their own $PEAK OUT message, which Diane will laser cut onto currency and incorporate into the larger ongoing art installment.
