LATS 45 - Comparative Perspectives on the US-Mexican Borderlands

This is a course guide for LATS 45.

Course description

This course examines the US-Mexican borderlands from an interdisciplinary perspective. Through exposure to a range of methods and subjects, we will better understand the region’s history, politics, and culture. We will employ this interdisciplinary approach in order to analyze the formation, merging, and contestation of gendered, racialized, and national identities and how they intersect with issues of mobility and belonging, law and order, the local and the global.
