Mimi Thi Nguyen, creator of the influential Race Riot series (read issue #1 online) and other zines, will be giving a talk next Thursday, October 25, at George Mason University for the Cultural Studies Colloquium.
The talk is called “Liberal Peace, Liberal War, and the Passage Between Them,” drawing on her new book The Gift of Freedom: War, Debt, and Other Refugee Passages and some new research on our contemporary wars.
