The second annual UndocU conference will be held on April 16-17, 2020 at CSU Long Beach. It will feature papers, presentations, roundtables, performances, and art installations focused on research with and in support of undocumented students, their families, and communities. Key questions to be addressed at the conference include: “How does the rescission of DACA and TPS compel immigrant youth to think about what it means to be unDACAmented? How might unDACAmented youth draw from the knowledge and experiences of previous undocumented generations? And, how does the increasingly limited access to immigration relief amid heightened surveillance and uncertainty shift how allies, service providers, and educational institutions respond to their diverse needs?”
The conference will begin on Thursday afternoon with a keynote talk by Ernesto Rocha (an LA-based organizer and storyteller). On Friday, a lunchtime plenary will showcase Armando Ibañez (the director and writer of the series “Undocumented Tales”).
