Nation Space Lecture Series: Ersela Kripa & Stephen Mueller

Thursday, November 19 | 12:00 PM

Virtual Event

This talk will transcend the political abstractions around the politics of U.S. sovereignty at the Mexican border with timely examinations of spatial conditions, constraints and convergences. Ersela Kripa and Stephen Mueller, partners in the award-winning firm AGENCY, will discuss a series of reports entitled "Border Dispatches," an on-the-ground perspective from the southern border. Each report explores a unique "sleeper agent," a critical site or actor with the power to reshape the diffuse and layered binational territory we know as the borderlands.

This talk is part of the Nation Space lecture series, held in conjunction with senior lecturer Michael Allen's fall 2020 seminar "Borders, Boundaries." It is funded by the Sam Fox School's Master of Landscape Architecture program.

The event is free, but registration is required. Register here>>
