The University of Texas at El Paso’s Maria Socorro Tabuenca, Ph.D., professor of languages and linguistics, was the keynote speaker at the 8th annual Crossing Over International Symposium on Oct. 5, 2019, at Cleveland State University in Cleveland, Ohio.
Tabuenca discussed “U.S. and Mexican Discourses on and about the U.S.-Mexico Borderlands” during the event that focuses on border studies. The theme of this year’s conference was “Place and Belonging.”
The symposium’s website states that the information shared there “analyzes borders as a physical, psychological and symbolic experience that affects relationships and negotiations among people around the world.”
