10:00 AM Landsick Exhibit by Rizzhel Mae Javier The New Americans Museum presents Landsick an exhibit that explores the hybridity of culture, complexity of intergenerational relationships and study of bi national families. Through the archiving of family photos, Javier examines the literal and metaphorical impact of distance between first generation Americans and their migrant ancestors. The installation pays tribute to family history, their place of origin and migration home.

Rizzhel Mae Javier is a San Diego based artist. Her work explores the intersection of memory, culture and human connection. Rizzhel uses art to dissect her identity through the research and creation of autobiographical projects. Through sharing her stories, she hopes to encourage viewers to recall and examine their own memories and personal experiences to learn about the impact on their identity and perception of self.

12:30 PM Talk: Immigrant Resistance in the Deportation Nation Professors Andrews and Prieto debut each of their new book projects on barriers to and opportunities for undocumented politics in the deportation nation. Andrews's Undocumented Politics: Place, Gender, and Pathways of Mexican Migrants and Prieto's Immigrants Under Threat: Risk and Resistance in the Deportation Nation together offer an analysis of the transnational relations, local political conditions, and gendered and racial hierarchies that reinforce immigrants' subordination at a time of unprecedented repression and create the conditions for the emergence of collective contention from these unlikely challengers. In this conversation between the authors, Andrews and Prieto reflect on the myriad ways that everyday life both enable and constrain immigrants' political mobilization and social mobility. The format for this session begins with brief presentations on from Professors Andrews and Prieto on their respective book projects, followed by a discussion between the authors and the audience.
