The southern border–from California to Florida–is the longest physical divide between the First and Third Worlds. This course will examine the border as a distinct landscape where North-South relations take on a specific spatial and cultural dimension, and as a region which has been the testing ground for such issues as free trade, immigration, and ethnic politics. Also listed as Ethnic Studies 159AC and Education 186AC.
