“Papers, Please”: Theorizing Border Discourses after Arizona House Bill 2281 & Senate Bill 1070
A Border Rhetorics Symposium
September 13, 2013
The University of Arizona
Arizona state laws SB1070 and HB2281 have positioned issues of immigration, education, and language, and public policy near the center of the public eye. As a case study, these laws demonstrate the complications of concepts such as border, il/legal immigration, nationality, identity and English, concepts that are interlaced within and erupt out of SB1070 and HB2281. Perhaps equally important, these laws call upon scholars to problematize and critique the lived experience that they effect. "Papers, Please" brings together scholars from a variety of disciplines to examine such issues at one-day symposium at The
University of Arizona.
