H-Borderlands: H-Net Network on U.S.-Mexico Borderlands

Member of: H-Net: Humanities and Social Sciences Online


H-Borderlands is dedicated to the history, culture, politics, and
contemporary affairs of the U.S.-Mexico Borderlands specifically, and
comparative borderlands more broadly. 
The network seeks to integrate the longstanding focus upon the Spanish
and U.S.-Mexican Borderlands with the global and metaphorical
borderlands made popular by recent international events and discussions
among scholars and policy makers. The network builds upon the themes and
issues covered in various listservs by charting new avenues of discourse
that investigate comparative borderlands, globalization and
transnationalism, the borderlands of race and gender, public policy, and
borderlands theory. 
In doing so, the discussion list will provide an interdisciplinary forum
for scholars and those outside of academe to discuss issues pertinent to
Borderlands Studies. The audience, content, tone, intellectual scope,
Editorial and Advisory Boards, and services provided by the discussion
list will reflect the vitality of the field(s) comprising Borderlands
Studies in the broadest sense.
Like all H-Net lists, H-Borderlands is moderated to edit out material
that, in the editors' opinion, is not germane to the list, involves
technical matters (such as subscription management requests), is
inflammatory, or violates evolving, yet common, standards of Internet
etiquette. H-Net's procedure for resolving disputes over list editorial
practices is Article II, Section 2.20 of our bylaws, located at:
