From the Bottom-Up: Grassroots Approach to Border Studies in the Classroom
Short Title: Grassroots Approach to Border Studies
Abstract: This case study explores different classroom methodologies for graduate and undergraduate seminars that aid in the construction of historical and contemporary understandings of borders, specifically the borders between the U.S., Mexico, and Canada. These grassroots constructions of the border entail historical connections and disconnections with “being” local, national, and transnational.
