Course Description: This course challenges U.S.-centric views on the US-Mexico border with a truly hemispheric approach as students are engaged with a diverse range of literatures and lived experiences from both sides of the line. As projected fears and desires clash with local resistance and self-representation in these texts, students gain a more nuanced understanding of the real and imaginary borderlands as multiple and mutable, constructed through constant (re)negotiations of place, class, gender, sexuality, and race. Primary readings include selections by Chicano/a authors, short stories and literary nonfiction by U.S. and Mexican border writers, and novels.
