U.S./Mexico Border

Like the bigger project, Center for Borderlands Studies at OCU, this “U.S./Mexico Borders” section seeks to feature current borderlands scholarship that has the U.S./Mexico border region as its primary focus. While the geographic borderlands and their related issues are always in view, we also look to the cultural and metaphoric borders and issues that emerge and confront borderlands people.


Our focus is intentionally broad to include those people who are from, those who have crossed through, and those most affected by the U.S./Mexico borderlands. Scholarly projects found here are collaboratively developed with multimedia with the aim of humanizing and bringing to light what we see as important and often unheard stories.
