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.
Angie and I are very happy to announce that you can now choose "Borderlands" as an "Area of Interest" on the "Edit Profile" page, and we are working with H-Net to get it added as its own category to the H-Net Book Channel. So go update your profiles!

I am seeking participants for a panel at Ethnohistory in October 2017 (Winnipeg). Titled “Sovereignty in Practice: Local Defenses of Native Land,” this panel will include geographically and temporally diverse papers that explore local negotiations over Native territory and sovereignty. While sovereignty is often seen as a matter of recognition by high-level federal or imperial authorities, Native territorial and political integrity is also produced, claimed, and defended at the local level.
