Much of the richness and vitality of the performing arts in the United States derives from creative talent originating elsewhere. "Treading the Borders" explores how successive waves of immigration transformed the American stage, highlighting the virtuosity and resilience of a diverse group of actors, artists, and entertainers from the colonial era to the present day.

Worldwide Week (Oct. 22-26) at Harvard showcases the remarkable breadth of Harvard’s global engagement. During Worldwide Week, Harvard Schools, research centers, departments, and student organizations host academic and cultural events with global or international themes.

This event is free and open to the public.
