This course immerses students in an exploration of core pedagogical concerns and possibilities raised by the US-Mexico and other borders. Focused on critical questions of mobility, difference, exclusion, production, reproduction and resistance, it pushes students to consider the relationship between nationalism, capitalism and education; center the praxis of migrants; and interrogate the epistemological and ontological bases of pedagogical practice.
