President Trump's election has drawn increased attention to the U.S.-Mexico border, but it has also resulted in changes on the northern U.S. border. The ‘Other’ Border is a response to the need to theorize this relationship and its historical and evolving dimensions. The symposium is the culmination of a larger collective project by IFUSS residential Research Fellows from outside the university, and from across the humanities, arts, and social sciences.
