January 21 - SDSU Hosts Conference
In San Diego last week, academic researchers from more than 30 countries gathered for the 4th International Conference on the Geographies of Children, Youth and Families. The three-day conference was organized by San Diego State University’s Department of Geography to discuss topics ranging from youth migration to child labor, educational policies, violence against children and young people’s rights and well-being. The theme of border crossings threaded through the conference, culminating with a panel discussion featuring the work of Dr. Kate Swanson and Dr. Stuart Aitken on unaccompanied migrant children crossing the U.S.-Mexico border into California, Arizona and Texas.
