LLS 596 A - Graduate Seminar in LLS - Critical Border Studies
Examination of specific topics in Latina/Latino Studies. Topics vary. Course Information: May be repeated in the same or subsequent semesters to a maximum of 12 hours.
Topic: "Critical Border Studies." Meets with AFRO 597, ANTH 515 and SOC 596. Be it in Europe, the Americas, the United States, or elsewhere in the globe, there has been belligerent calls to tighten international borders, and better regulate, who can settle, who can migrate, who must leave, and who should be held. Detention, policing, and the surveillance of immigrants and refugees has augmented exponentially. Keeping the pressing presence of the present central, the course moves through theoretical shifts underscoring the frictions among questions of movement, borders, migrations, and refugee studies with respect to the debates on abolition, biopolitics, settler colonialism, and other currents.
