"Bridging National Borders in North America":
On March 24th at the Clements Center for Southwest Studies, Southern Methodist University,Dallas,TX, an international group of scholars will convene a day-long public symposium to discuss the history of borderlands in North America.
Over the past century "Borderlands" has become shorthand for the U.S. Southwest and the Mexican north, yet little attention has been paid to the border dividing Canada and the U.S. despite a similarly rich history. This event aims to correct that oversight. In an era when all of North American's borders are growing economically, demographically and politically more important, 11 scholars will present papers on the collective history of these regions. Sharing knowledge on First Nations peoples, labor migration, industrial growth, political policies, and environmental trends, they will illustrate how the shared histories of Canadians, Mexicans and Americans hold lessons for all North Americans and beyond.
