Borderlands are spaces where people of different ethnicities, cultures, religions, political systems, or linguistic traditions come into contact, often without any one authority exercising complete control. The Borderlands International Graduate Student Conference will showcase new research on the ways borderlands encounters have stimulated the creation, definition, and/or adaptation of faith identities among various groups of people.

Cosponsored by the Department of Anthropology, the Department of History of Art and Architecture, the Department of Classics, the Department of Comparative Literature, the Department of Religious Studies, the IHC, the Department of History, the Department of Sociology, and the Department of Global Studies.
