DOXA Highlights

For anyone who ever dreamed of glory on the b-ball court. Well, perhaps not glory, but just basic competence, here come the Pistol Shrimps!

The life and times, and most importantly the art, of Maya Angelou is given expansive coverage in Bob Hercules and Rita Coburn Whack’s film biography.

A broken down ferry, an isolated island, a group of angry fishermen, and an influx of trapped refugees... This might sound like the beginnings of a thriller, but the situation is real. This is the challenging predicament for the Italian island of Lampedusa.

Borders are more than arbitrary lines on a map, they’re also a means of controlling and mediating reality. But as the refugee crisis continues to expand, traditional barriers are failing. We are witnessing the largest human migration in history. In the face of this, the places we draw off in our mind - what is right or appropriate -- are also being challenged. Our Spotlight on Borders and Boundaries examines the ongoing negotiation between these physical and conceptual divisions.
