Special Colloquium in Honor of Dr. Wilder: "Humane Environments: Imaginaries of the Present and Future Mexico-US Border”



3 to 5 p.m., May 3, 2024

Please join us and the School of Geography, Development, and Environment (SGDE) and for a special colloquium in honor of our colleague Margaret (Peggy) Wilder who is retiring at the end of the spring semester of 2024.

A panel of Margaret’s collaborators, colleagues, and students will discuss their research and visions for the US-Mexico border.  

“Humane Environments: Imaginaries of the Present and Future Mexico-US Border”

Refreshments at 2:45 pm

Room ENR2 107** on the University of Arizona campus AND Zoom. Please register here. 

For those interested, there will be an informal Binational Research Collaboration discussion preceding the colloquium from 1:00-2:30 p.m. in the ENR2 Building, Room 604 (use the right-hand elevator to reach the 6th floor/Rooftop), taking advantage of the presence of a distinguished group of binational researchers from the Colegio de Sonora and Arizona State University here to participate in the School of Geography’s Colloquium that same afternoon (see attached flier).

This will be a very informal opportunity to get to know some great new people, hear briefly about their research, and discuss potential areas for future collaboration in the areas of: water/climate/environment/food studies/social policy/immigration and migrants/urban sustainability and other relevant topics for the Mexico-US border region. Adriana Zuniga (UA) and América Lutz Ley (Colegio de Sonora) have kindly agreed to facilitate the discussion.

Please feel free to invite other interested faculty and graduate student colleagues!  Come with your ideas for transboundary research, grant projects, and more.

Any questions: Margaret Wilder (mwilder@arizona.edu).
