ANT 263 - Anthropology of Borderlands


This course challenges us to develop a multi-layered, comparative understanding of the literal and conceptual aspects of borderlands. Using the U.S./México border as our primary focus, we will attempt to understand the forces that expand and constrain notions of community, culture, gender, ways of being, power, and domination. In addition to providing the historical development of the U.S.-México border and demonstrating how the border shapes and is shaped by the Mexican and the U.S. nation-states, we will also consider how other borders function as sites for the organization of bodies and lives. Course Typically Offered: Every two years.

Prerequisite(s): None.

Credits: 3
