 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 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.

Submit proposals here

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.
