H-Borderlands is the H-Net home for global borderlands historians.  Originally a forum for scholars of the US-Mexico borderlands, it has grown to a wider community of researchers of continental and global border regions.  We welcome transnational historians and scholars in many different disciplines who study historical and contemporary borderlands and border issues.

While these large populations have drawn the attention of sociologists, anthropologists, and popular audiences, less attention has been given to the longer and interconnected histories of immigration to the region.
