Rebecca Schreiber is Associate Professor of American Studies at the University of New Mexico.

Professor Schrieber’s talk draws from Migrant Lives and the Promise of Documentation (University of Minnesota Press, 2018), which examines the significance of self-representation as a strategy in documentary photography, film, video, and audio projects involving Mexican and Central American migrants in the U.S. and U.S.-Mexico borderlands between 2000 and 2012. The presentation will focus on migrant activists’ use of media tactics as part of the No Papers, No Fear Ride for Justice campaign in 2012, in which they organized against anti-immigrant state and federal laws, policies, and programs.
