Trying To Document The Undocumented At The Border Through Literature

There is, almost by definition, little documentation of the undocumented. That applies to literature as well.

Robert Irwin will be talking about that Wednesday in a lecture at Arizona State University called “Undocumented Literature on the Mexican Border.” He’s a professor at the University of California, Davis in the Spanish and Portuguese department and is a specialist in Mexican and Mexican-American culture.

Mark Brodie is a co-host of The Show, KJZZ’s locally produced news magazine. Since starting at KJZZ in 2002, Brodie has been a host, reporter and producer, including several years covering the Arizona Legislature, based at the Capitol.
