In March 2020, CRG’s Native/Immigrant/Refugee – Crossings Research Initiative (NIRCRI) had to cancel its planned symposium, “Native/Immigrant/Refugee: Movements Across Contested Grounds” due to the pandemic.  NIRCRI turned the material from the symposium into course collaborations between UC faculty and symposium speakers, this fall providing several UC Berkeley courses with guest lecturers.
