Megan Myers publishes book: “The Border of Lights Reader”


Megan Myers, associate professor of Spanish and co-director of the Languages and Cultures for Professions program, has published a new book: “The Border of Lights Reader.”

The anthology is available via open access and in print and serves as a multimodal, multi-vocal space for activists, artists, scholars and others connected to the Border of Lights movement as related to the 1937 Haitian Massacre.

“The Border of Lights Reader” provides an alternative to the dominant narrative that positions Dominicans and Haitians as eternal adversaries. This innovative anthology emphasizes cross-border and collaborative histories and asks large-scale, universal questions regarding historical memory and revisionism.
