Join presentations, conversations, and a book signing by and about women artists and their profound and turbulent experiences of migration through the lenses of politics and war, love, and family.

Women and Migration: Responses in Art and History (edited by Deborah Willis, Ellyn Toscano, and Kalia Brooks Nelson) is a collection of essays that charts how women’s experiences of migration have been articulated in writing, photography, art and film, covering the Caribbean Diaspora, refugees, and slavery. The contributors, which include academics and artists, offer both personal and critical points of view on the artistic and historical repositories of these experiences.
