About Jason de León
Anthropologist and MacArthur Fellow Jason de León will discuss his work in the Sonoran Desert, collecting artifacts left behind by migrants trying to gain entry to the United States.
De León is the Executive Director of the Undocumented Migration Project, a research, arts, and education collective that seeks to raise awareness about migration issues globally while also assisting families of missing migrants to be reunited with their loved ones.
He is the author of the award-winning book "The Land of Open Graves: Living and Dying on the Migrant Trail" (featuring photos by Michael Wells).
