Summary
"Approximately 500 years after the first borderlands were being constructed in Latin America to distinguish the indigenous population from their colonizers, boundaries are still being created in Latin America. Although borders still exist, the reasons for their construction and maintenance in the current global world have expanded. Today Latin American borders include the traditional political borders, as well as more non-traditional borders reflected in art, gender, and social programs. Because borders, and the concept of borders, are constantly changing, the chapters in this edited volume present a reexamination of the more traditionally defined political borders as well as those that are constructed by the human body, art, and social policy. The chapters naturally separate into four different general topics: 1) traditional transnational borders, 2) borders and the gendered body, 3) borders as depicted in art, and 4) borders and social programs."--Provided by publisher
