Textual Overtures Graduate Journal

In the preface to Borderlands, Gloria Anzaldúa declares: "I am a border woman." As simple as it sounds, this statement suggests the individual's agency in the social and cultural production of personal identity as it boldly rejects to acknowledge the power of the state in the process. Migration and border-crossing today present serious political, social and cultural challenges, which force countries to craft policies to address security, economic, and humanitarian concerns. The migration crisis in Europe offers a new perspective on the development of migrant identity in this ever-changing relationship between the individual and the host country.
