In this session, three scholars approached these questions from varied perspectives and embarked on a discussion that crossed the globe.


Panelists: Dr. Charles Russell (and Moderator), Randall Morris, Jo Farb Hernández

These cultural terms of engagement vary and shift as the relevance of cultural lines of demarcation are questioned and debated in contemporary discourse. In this session, three scholars approached these questions from diverse perspectives.
