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.
