Latin American Borderlands Seminar

Convenors: Kyle Harvey (Western Carolina University) and Ángeles Picone (Boston College)

For a generation, historians of Latin America have brought sustained attention to the histories of places that fall outside of the classical nation-state paradigm. These in-between geographies – frontiers, transnational spaces, worlds, and borderlands – now make up a set of alternative historical geographies in Latin America with their own questions, challenges, and debates. This series brings together scholars of this new tradition by inviting authors of some of the most recent research on Latin American borderlands to talk about their work, the state of the field, and what sits on the horizon for historians of alternative Latin American geographies.
