Living in a Globalised World
This unit interrogates the idea of a globalised world by showing how inequalities in access to material wealth and expectations of lifestyle, which have been created historically between the US and Mexico, produces border tensions as Mexicans seek entry to the US to do jobs that resident American citizens will not undertake for the wages offered.
The Study of Spanish-Speaking People of Texas
This collection of photographs includes images of the many poignant, proud, exasperating, joyful, and intimate moments in the lives of people in these Mexican-American communities at a very specific point in time.
The University of Arizona's student-run online magazine, Border Beat, was established to explore and provide fresh perspectives on the people, places and issues of the U.S.–Mexico Border.
