Border Wall and Beyond: Political and Geopolitical Implications

This is one of two back-to-back panel sessions I am chairing on the Border Wall and Beyond at AAG 2018. Featuring some of the most prominent geographers currently working on the issues of border and immigration, this panel asks: What are the political and social implications of Trump’s proposed border wall and reversal of DACA protections for undocumented migrants and refugees? For violence against migrants and marginalization of migrant communities? From a geopolitical standpoint, what do these acts of militarizing the border and curtailing the rights of a heretofore protected class of migrants mean for broader relations with Mexico, Latin America, and the rest of the world? For those who seek to engage in resistance, what strategies may most effectively challenge these new realities?

Short essays from both panel discussions will be featured in the Journal of Latin American Geography's Perspectives Forum in summer, 2018.

Border Wall and Beyond: Environmental and Political Ecological Implications

This is the second of two back-to-back panels I have co-organized on the "Border Wall and Beyond." My fellow panelists and I will reflect on the ways the current political situation is disordering the border as both a biophysical and a discursive space, paying particular attention to the environmental repercussions of the proposed wall. In this moment of national reckoning on the border wall, DACA, treatment of refugees, and NAFTA, we aim to shed light and share academic perspectives on these important and timely issues.
