Department Section Description: 

This course will examine the cultural and literary discourses emerging from the locus of the U.S./Mexico border, a space of postnational political conflict that has extended deep into both nations. The course will survey non-fiction, literature, and political theory as avenues for thinking through this postnational condition. Students will become familiar with the history of the border, beginning with the Treaty of Guadalupe-Hidalgo in 1848 and extending through NAFTA and up to the current political climate.
