Award winning journalist and author Todd Miller will speak about his new book where he asks the question: “Is it possible to create a borderless world?” In a series of anecdotes, he relates his encounters with U.S. Border Patrol agents, deportees, migrants, human-rights activists, and scholars, taking readers on a journey from the deserts of the Southwest to the mountains of Guatemala, and to border zones across the globe. 

Todd Miller is an independent journalist and writer. His work has appeared in The New York Times, The Nation, San Francisco Chronicle, Guernica, and Al Jazeera English, among others. Miller is also the author of "Empire of Borders: The Expansion of the U.S. Border Around the World" (2019), "Storming the Wall: Climate Change, Migration, and Homeland Security" (2017), and "Border Patrol Nation: Dispatches from the Front Lines of Homeland Security" (2014).  He was the recipient of the 2018 Izzy Award for his outstanding contribution to independent media.
