In an era of increasing globalization, the “border” experience is becoming more and more widespread. Migration, exile, and the relocation of cultural groups for economic or political reasons are common occurrences that have led to the creation of what some critics have called “border cultures.” This course examines the cultural production generated by different kinds of border crossings. In addition to national borders, it engages the role of linguistic, ethnic, sexual, cultural, and economic borders in the creation of Latin American, Latinx, and U.S. identities.
