Fifth International Conference of Border Studies

 View Call for Proposals

Professors, researchers, students, and the general public interested in Border Studies topics are invited to participate in this conference.

Our goal is to generate a space for the exchange of research and socialization among those interested in issues related to global borders around the world.

We encourage papers that consider any global border as well as theoretical papers on the ideology of borders more generally and how borders and borderlands help us understand broader global issues.

The proximity to the border of our locations in Mexico and the US is a special opportunity for scholars and researchers from the US and Mexico to collaborate in a unique geographic region on the important and timely issues related to borders. We aim to encourage working together across borders to find solutions to some of the most important economic, social, and ecological problems we face today.

Feel free to call me at (956) 457-3083 if you need a bit more guidance.

We regret, however, that the conference organizers, and UTRGV, must strongly advise against travel to Matamoros since currently Matamoros is under a level 4 U.S. State Department warning and there has been a recent increase in fighting among the drug cartels. 

Please direct all questions to Caroline Miles at caroline.miles@utrgv.edu or call (956) 457-3083
