The University of New Mexico Department of American Studies presents a public talk with Barni Axmed Qaasim on Sept. 30 at 1 p.m. in Education Building, Room 103.
Co-sponsored by the Chicana and Chicano Studies Department and the Southwest Hispanic Research Institute, Axmed Qaasim will be presenting her work with migrant activists.
As a storyteller and filmmaker she works with communities to document movements for social justice, to train members to use media tools and to create media strategies to win campaigns. Her work is rooted in the philosophy that those most impacted by injustice are capable, strong and the most qualified to tell their own stories.
This talk is free and open to the public.
Over the past year, UNM’s Department of American Studies has held a series of public talks on artists and filmmakers whose work focuses on US – Mexico border issues. This event is related to the work of the Transnational Americas Research Cluster
