Join ICW and leading scholars in the field of borderlands studies for a roundtable on the ways in which borders are shaping gender identities and opening opportunities for the renegotiation of femininity, masculinity, and family dynamics along the U.S.-Mexico Border.

Often focused on the history of capital, labor, and immigration, borderlands historians are also calling attention to the gendered dimensions of border crossing. Recent work by scholars in the field are raising and addressing questions of state power and gender and sexuality in border regions as well as the ways in which border relationships reshape gender identities or open opportunities for the renegotiation of femininity, masculinity, and family dynamics.
