    In this seminar we will examine two key geopolitical concepts in Latin America: ?Border? and ?Periphery?. Borders are cartographic abstractions that delimit national sovereignty, but in themselves borders are in-between zones often marked by lawlessness. Latin America as a region has been circumscribed by its position as a periphery or margin in world order. We will start the seminar with a consideration of Mexican-American and Chicano culture, with particular attention to law(lessness) and technologies of power along the border. From there we will ?migrate south,? in order to gauge how Latin American artists and intellectuals have questioned their own borders in terms of dependency, marginality, and displacement.
