The built environment along the U.S.-Mexico border has long been a hotbed of political and creative action. In this volume, the historically tense region and visually provocative margin-the southwestern United States and northern Mexico-take center stage. From the borderlands perspective, the symbolic importance and visual impact of border spaces resonate deeply.
In the new volume Border Spaces, Katherine G. Morrissey, John-Michael H. Warner, and other essayists build on the insights of border dwellers, or fronterizos, and draw on two interrelated fields-border art history and border studies. The editors engage in a conversation on the physical landscape of the border and its representations through time, art, and architecture.
The volume is divided into two linked sections-one on border histories of built environments and the second on border art histories. Each section begins with a "conversation" essay-co-authored by two leading interdisciplinary scholars in the relevant fields-that weaves together the book's thematic questions with the ideas and essays to follow.
Border Spaces is a volume that is prompted by art and grounded in an academy ready to consider the connections between art, land, and peoples.
