Collaborative Goals

We organized a two-day symposium on “Borders, Captivity and Memory in Transnational Italy and the Mediterranean” on March 18, 2022 (hosted by Cornell University) and April 8, 2022 (hosted by the University of Rochester) with the goal of bringing together scholars, activists, and undergraduate and graduate students from Corridor institutions along with people from five different continents and diverse areas of expertise, all with the goal of creating a dialogue about issues connected to present and past migrations and borders in Italy and the Mediterranean.

We acheived these goals by bringing together more than 200 people at the events from multiple continents. The events sparked lively discussions and collaborations that have inspired several future projects.
