“La Frontera” The Mexicano Adaptive Landscape of the Borderlands

March 11th, 2008 by Amber Frid-Jimenez

Ute Meta Bauer, co-director of the Zones of Emergency lecture series, will be on a panel at Harvard (Stubbins, Room 112) on March 20 from 11:30-2:30. She will be reflecting on InSite2005. Moises Gonzales, who will be joining us at ZOE next Monday (3/17), will be moderating this discussion about border issues with Luis Sigueros, Ruben Martinez and Teddy Cruz.

The Mexican – United States borderlands have sustained several hundred years of human settlements and transformation of the natural landscape.  In the midst of political, social, economic, and environmental challenges, “mexicanos” have continued to adapt to the natural and built environment of both northern Mexico and the American southwest.  This forum will explore the transformation adaptive landscape of “La Frontera”.
