Presented by the NYU Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies. Co-sponsored by the Asian/Pacific/American Institute at NYU and the Center for Black Visual Culture at NYU.

Grace Aneiza Ali (NYU Art & Public Policy), editor of Liminal Spaces: Migration and Women of the Guyanese Diaspora (OpenBook Publishers, 2020), is joined by three of the volume’s contributors, artists Maya Mackrandilal and Suchitra Mattai, and writer Maria del Pilar Kaladeen.┬áMultimodal in approach, Liminal Spaces combines memoir, creative non-fiction, poetry, photography, art, and curatorial essays, which examine the mutable notion of “homeland.” This conversation, moderated by Aisha Khan (NYU Anthropology), will explore Guyanese migration narratives from the 1950s to the present, and consider the role of art in telling migration stories.
