We will briefly discuss concepts and case studies that portray the complexity of change reflected in the transformations of people, spaces, and identities at the border, which ultimately produces unique cultural expressions of diversity present in music, gastronomy, art, traditions, and imagery. Shared cultural heritages in border communities is forged out of unique transnational populations with an intertwined past, present, and future. Tickets $20, BCA members, $15.
