Public Health and the Making of the U.S. Mexico Border

Lecture Description

From 1848, federal health authorities have been called on to determine who needs to be protected from disease and illness. When authorities act in a place like Texas where people cross rivers, live, love and work together and consider themselves to be part of their communities and their nations, public health becomes a key site to understand and enact health and disease, citizenship and community, inclusion and exclusion.
