Courses: Narratives of the Border (ENGLB248001)

Spring 2010

Class Number: 2376
III HU
New Course: The borderlands between the United States and Mexico
produced a culture reflecting the best and the worst of both. One
sees contradictions at a glance: architectural beauty conflicting with
shantytowns; local literature, film and music juxtaposed with drug
dealers; a tradition of hospitality contrasted with anti-immigration
activism. This course examines narratives of the borderlands,
discussing the heritage of area African American, Native American and
Mexican/Chicano and Anglo.
