“From Potosí to Tennessee: Clandestine Desires and the Sounds of Crossing.”
by Alex E. Chávez

Chávez argues these notions of selfhood are inextricably linked to the transnational experiences, needs, and desires of Mexican migrants, all of which disturb both legal and cultural-nationalist logics on both sides of the U.S.-Mexico border.

“Verses & Flows: Ethnography, the Voice, and the Borders of Aurality” by Alex Chávez

In this presentation and performance, Alex E. Chávez explores the contemporary politics of Mexican migrant cultural expression manifest in the sounds and poetics of huapango arribeño, a musical genre originating from north-central Mexico. He draws on these experiences to address how aurality, ethnography, and performance have shaped the politics of his intellectual and creative work and how he engages both to theorize around the political efficacy of sound-based practices, the “voice,” and the disciplinary futures of borderlands anthropology.
