GEOG 246 - The U.S.-Mexico Border: Nation-State and Nature

1 unit(s)
(Same as LALS 246 ) Born in large part of violence, conquest and dispossession, the United States-Mexico border region has evolved over almost two centuries into a site of intense economic growth and trade, demographic expansion, ethno-cultural interaction, and political geographic conflict. The course focuses on these processes over space and time as they relate to capitalist production, state-making, and nation-building on both sides of the international divide. In doing so, the course considers the U.S.-Mexico borderlands as a region, one characterized by dynamic transboundary ties and myriad forms of socio-spatial difference. 

Two 75-minute periods.

Not offered in 2021/22.

Course Format: CLS
