2018-2019 Andrew Norman Lecture
Thursday, Oct. 11, 2018, 7 p.m.

“Cat Fights on the Río & Diabolic Caminos in the Desert: The nature of boundary enforcement in the US-Mexico borderlands” by Juanita Sundberg

In this lecture, Sundbger presents a more-than-human analysis of boundary making and enforcement at the United States’ southern border with Mexico. This form of analysis seeks to account for other-than-humans as actors who participate in making worlds. Familiar narratives about boundary enforcement at the US-Mexico border feature humans as the primary actors of significance and position other-than-humans in an inferior ontological realm called Nature. Struggles to manage lively assemblages of other-than-humans, has led state actors to call for authoritarian legal mechanisms and ever more militarized tactics and infrastructure like walls and surveillance technology. Sundberg suggests, attention to other-than-humans leads to different explanations for the causes of escalating enforcement in the US-Mexico borderlands; such explanations contest the pursuit of mastery.

Juanita Sundberg is Associate Professor in the Department of Geography at the University of British Columbia, Canada; she is also Faculty Associate at the Institute for Gender, Race, Sexuality, and Social Justice as well as the Institute for Resources, Environment & Sustainability also at the University of British Columbia.
