This course is designed as an introduction to historical awareness, historical thinking, and historical methodology. Our objective is to
understand how the history of the Border (the border separating the United States and Mexico) has shaped political, economic, historic
and cultural realities, for centuries, at a place that’s neither fixed nor clear. Students will study primary documents, read essays/literary
accounts, and view films to arrive at a more complete understanding of the history, tragedy and possibility of the border.
Prerequisite: Sophomore Status
