Security and Insecurity in the Texas/Mexico Frontera Regions
November 19, 2021 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm
This panel considers Texas/Mexico border regions from the perspectives of three scholars who know them well. C.J. Alvarez, Cecilia Ballí, and Timothy Dunn will discuss security concerns associated with “the border” at national, regional, and local levels.
The conversation will situate the Texas/Mexico border areas within larger national debates about secure borders and will address multiple ways border communities might experience security and insecurity, including violence; economic instability; and access to natural resources such as water or land.
The conversation will be moderated by Melissa Biggs from the Humanities Institute at UT Austin.
