Description: This panel will draw upon the themes raised by “Internalized Borders,” an exhibition that examines the ways that language and legal systems create internal and external borders. Visual Culture and language have a profound effect on how we as a country vote in political elections and also affect the national point of view. Historically, the cultural production of such images and language defined how people were seen by their governing institutions and by society in general. Some of the language created to define them has stayed permanently in the system or been challenged by society. What is the responsibility of lawmakers, historians, and cultural producers, in how we define people currently and in the future?
