CONVERGENT MIGRATIONS / MIGRACIONES CONVERGENTES
September 29, 2022
3-5 pm Az Time / 5-7 pm hora CDMX
In this panel, we revisit the concept of "convergent migrations", proposed by researcher Columba González-Duarte, to explore the ecological and political connections and disconnections of different places along continental migratory routes. From north to south and south to north, the authors examine the transformations of vast ecosystems that traverse and shape diverse border territories, and that are interwoven, in complex and unique ways, with flows of bodies, goods, and ways of life, human and non-human, in the face of a socio-environmental crisis: The territories of the monarch butterfly in its migratory transit through three border nation-states; the struggles of activist communities for the rights of nonhuman animals on the border between Ciudad Juárez and El Paso; or the criminalization of nonhuman life forms on the Amazonian borders.

En esta conversación, exploro los movimientos convergentes y trasfronterizos de humanos y mariposas entre ecologías toxicas, secas, mortales. Ecologías desgastadas y portátiles.
In this conversation, I discuss the convergent and cross-border movements of humans and butterflies across toxic, dry, deadly ecologies. Damaged and portable ecologies.
