The materials studied in the course and the interaction with the migrant workers community, will allow students to think on the controversial debate about la frontera (the border) from a scholarly point of view without losing sight of concrete impacts at the local level. The course strives to generate a better understanding of the relation between the United States and Mexico, helping students to immerse knowledgeably in current discussions about immigration policy and economics.
