Arizona has become the epicenter for immigration politics and debate. This course examines the issues, reforms and responses by government officials, businesses and private residents. We analyze and discuss the resistance and resiliency of migrant communities living in the borderlands. We will also take a close look at the organizing tactics and discourse utilized in mobilizing for social change in Arizona and beyond.
This course will explore the foundations and central tenets of Border Crit Theory, a framework inspired by Critical Race Theory, Tribal Crit and Lat Crit. We will examine the origins of CRT and its intersections. By looking at its current applications, debates, and evolutions, we will explore the tension between understanding that race and borders are endemic to society and the commitment to social justice and praxis.

Learning Happens In and Outside the Classroom
This book provides a first-hand chronicle of the immigration debate that engulfs our nation. Ray Ybarra Maldonado writes about the border from his personal experience as a child and from the perspective of a dedicated activist who has traveled into the interior of Mexico to find victims of vigilante abuse. While others are arguing over what comprehensive immigration reform looks like, the author’s personal conflict between doing what is morally right and breaking the law challenges readers to take a drastically different look at one of the most pressing issues facing nation-states in the 21st Century: immigration and the human right to cross borders.
