We know that more than 3,200 people have gone missing since the 1990’s to the present day in the Sonora Desert, Arizona alone – but what does that mean? And how do you document atrocities happening to people who are, by the very nature of their plight, undocumented? In today’s conversation, we talk to archaeologist turned anthropologist Professor Jason De León, from UCLA, about what it looks like to cross a border, and what kind of traces people leave behind in the past and present. We also introduce you to a new global exhibition, Hostile Terrain 94.

In this series, we bring you fresh knowledge and insight from the team at the Immigration Initiative at Harvard, led by our Director, Professor Roberto G. Gonzales, and featuring voices from the field. Join us as we get to know our neighbors through their stories.

This podcast is hosted by Dr Jennifer Allsopp and produced by Xiren Wang and Dr Jennifer Allsopp.
