At the University of Chicago Office of Multicultural Student Affairs, we want students to have access to academic and cultural resources, but to also have opportunities independent of the classroom and student life. Thus, the following is a list of opportunities where students can go to search for funding, enrich their summers or find work after graduation.

Immigration Symposium at Ohio Union

“Beyond the Arizona Immigration Law: Policing Borders, Bodies, and Belonging”

Friday, Oct. 29, 9:00 a.m. – 1:30 p.m.
Multicultural Center, Ohio Union

Following up on the success of last spring’s event “Arizona: Why Should We Care?” the Diversity and Identity Studies Collective at OSU (DISCO) is hosting a symposium on contemporary immigration debates and their relevance to our fields.

OSU faculty and graduate students associated with African American and African Studies, American Indian Studies, Asian American Studies, Comparative Ethnic and American Studies, Disability Studies, Latino/a Studies, Sexuality Studies, and Women’s Studies will engage this fraught and contentious issue by expanding the conversation beyond the particularities of the Arizona bill and discuss how these dynamics have appeared historically acrossvarious academic areas and activist arenas.

The symposium aims to explore in particular the ways that the policing of national borders is intimately linked to the policing of desirable and undesirable bodies.
