Belle Fourche native, Dr. Cari Lee Skogberg Eastman, will present “Disorder on the Border”  in two identical presentations at Black Hills State University Friday, March 23 at 1 p.m. in the David B. Miller Student Union Jacket Legacy Room, and again at 7 p.m. in Meier Recital Hall.

Eastman, author of Shaping the Immigration Debate: Contending Civil Societies on the US-Mexico Border, explores the relationship among passionate citizen groups, the messages they promote, and public understanding at the national level of the issues at stake in the immigration debate.

She will discuss stories of interaction between unauthorized immigrants crossing the border into Arizona and the US citizens they encounter have made headlines not only in areas adjacent to the border, but across the entire United States.

This multi-cultural event is sponsored by College of Liberal Arts—Mass Communication and is  free and open to the public.  For more information contact Dr. Mary Caton-Rosser, assistant professor of mass communication, at 642-6422 or email Mary.CatonRosser@BHSU.edu.
