New Books by BC Faculty Series: Daniel Campos “Sino peripatetico” On Transnational Lives/Sobre las vidas transnacionales

September 26, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Philosophy Professor Daniel Campos’s philosophical memoir Sino peripatético (New York: Sudaquia Editores, 2023) will serve as the starting point for a conversation on the transnational lives of people who, in the Americas and globally, are no longer emigrants or immigrants but “peripatetics.”

The speakers will be Daniel Campos, Yagersys Laya, Wilson Jachero, Sergio Gallegos, Ignacio Carvajal, and they will offer comments on the memoir and then the audience will participate in an open-ended conversation on the experiences and challenges of migrating and living transnationally. The event will be held online in Spanish with simultaneous English-language translation.
