This course presents a critical perspective on national borders and borderlands through the experiences of Indigenous peoples and nations who are occupied and partitioned by colonial regimes, specifically in the Americas. We will survey the impacts of colonial occupation and competition such as militarization, partition, resource extraction, carcerality, gender violence, and impunity on Indigenous peoples, with a particular focus the intersections of gender and sexuality. Students will learn transdisciplinary methodologies to examine popular culture and discourse, historical and legal records, film, digital media, literature, cartography, and testimonials to consider both the settler imaginary of the border and Indigenous border resistance.

For those who declared in Fall 2023 or later, this course can fulfill one of two subject requirements for the English major:
