Comparative Border Studies

Thursday, February 10, 2011 - 5:49pm
Special Issue of Comparative American Studies

This special issue is devoted to the comparative study of global border regions. Since the emergence of border studies in the 1950s and 1960s, geographers, economists, anthropologists, and social and political scientists have examined a variety of national boundaries worldwide. The more recent focus in the humanities on the U.S.-Mexico border has helped transform U.S. American studies into a transnational discipline with emphasis on the comparative, relational, and intersectional study of citizenship, region, and migration. The limited attention to the U.S. boundary with Mexico within this current of Americanist scholarship has, however, threatened to replicate the very notion of U.S.
