American Encounters: Greater Mexico, the United States, and the Erotics of Culture

Synopsis

Award-winning anthropologist Jose Limon looks into history, politics, literature, folklore, ethnography, biography, film, song, & dance to prone the deeply entwined & ambivalent relationship between both sides of the border over the last 150 years. The idea of crossing the Rio Grande between the U.S. & Mexico has always conjured images of racial hostility & exclusion. And today these images include stories of immigrant drownings, drug killings, & toxic waste. Limon's analysis engages us in the political, popular, & cultural dimension of the border & offers hope for the future.
