A different game plan for autumn weekends. You are invited to join in discussion with Notre Dame’s most engaging faculty on some of the most pressing and fascinating issues of our times. Each lecture and Q&A is presented on a home game Friday. Visit Ahead of the Game for a complete listing.

Marisel Moreno
Rev. John A. O'Brien Associate Professor of Spanish

How is the Caribbean similar and different from the Mexico-U.S. border? How do literature and art help us understand the phenomenon of undocumented migration in the Caribbean? Join us for an examination of literary and artistic representations of unauthorized maritime migration in the Spanish-speaking Caribbean, challenging the myth of the Caribbean as paradise and exploring a region defined by the impact of colonialism, imperialism, and neoliberalism. 

All lectures are free and open to the public. No tickets required.
