H-Borderlands is dedicated to Comparative Borderlands Study, with some emphasis on the history, culture, politics, and contemporary affairs of the U.S.-Mexico Borderlands within the context of comparative borderlands more broadly. The network will provide an interdisciplinary forum for scholars and those outside of academe to discuss issues pertinent to Borderlands Studies.

Announcing the new Resources tab

Greetings H-Net subscribers!

We are pleased to announce the release of the Resources tab, which is now located at the top of all of our Networks. Prior to the release, there was a Media tab that chronologically aggregated all of the contributions uploaded to a particular Network. While the Media tab clearly had some basic archival value, with the development of many diverse projects making use of this material on our Networks, editors asked for a better way to organize that content. The Resources tab is the fruit of those aims.

The Borders of Religion

Dear Colleague,

We are pleased to announce that Volume 6 of Religion and Society has been published by Berghahn Journals. This volume is marked by borders, boundaries, and limits. The borders here are those that make religion operative and politically powerful, as well as those that are enabled and put into place by religious arguments and worldviews. This issue features a Special Section exploring Borderlands and Religion.
