UVic News Story on the Hostile Terrain-94 (HT94) exhibit

Our department hosted the Hostile Terrain-94 (HT94) exhibit earlier this year and Dr. Melissa Gauthier and her third-year undergraduate students took part in this project.
"Hostile Terrain 94 (HT94) is a participatory art project sponsored and organized by the Undocumented Migration Project (UMP), a non-profit research-art-education-media collective, directed by anthropologist Jason De León. The exhibition is composed of over 3,200 handwritten toe tags that represent migrants who have died trying to cross the Sonoran Desert of Arizona between the mid-1990s and 2019. These tags are geolocated on a wall map of the desert showing the exact locations where remains were found."
