CORE 003 SC - Walls, Borders, Fences


How can we think about borders, walls, and fences as both material boundaries and networks of historical, ideological, political, and economic conditions that define nation-states, communities, and collectivities? How are borders being reconfigured in the contemporary world in ways that change how we think about sovereignty, power, citizenship, and violence? How do borders shape the relationships between space and identity? This class explores the relationships between social, spatial, and political divisions in different historical and geographic contexts including the U.S. It addresses issues including ongoing forms of settler-colonialism, anti-immigration policies and rhetoric, and state-sponsored or sanctioned violence in border zones. *Note: if this course was taken as Core 2 in spring 2019, it may not be enrolled in again.

Course Credit: 1.0
Offered: Every year
