The symposium, called “Landscapes, Peoples, and Institutions: Constructing the Borderlands,” will take place from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. in Flowers Hall, room 230.

Presentations will be given throughout the day on various topics related to the borderlands region. Morning presentations will be given in Spanish, and presentations in the afternoon will be in English.
