Border Crossings: The Making of the Mexico-U.S. Borderlands

The U.S.-Mexico border is more than just a line dividing a nation. It is about families, communities, and labor.

Lecture Description

This lecture examines how immigration and foreign investments shaped communities in the Mexico-U.S. borderlands. It argues that the present-day Mexican borderlands emerged from efforts to keep Mexican labor moving across the U.S. border while fixing national communities in place.
