OVERVIEW

This seminar will expose students to diverse perspectives about México-U.S. border and immigration issues. During the fall semester, students will meet with the seminar director five times to discuss readings about these issues. At the beginning of January of 2014, students will travel to the Southern Arizona borderlands and will attend legal proceedings focused on immigration, participate in humanitarian service efforts for migrants, hear religious leaders discuss their current and past border ministry work, and travel through the desert and ports of entry assuming that security is not an issue. Particular attention will be devoted to the intersection of religion—especially Catholic Social Teachings—and migration. Fluency in Spanish is preferred, but not required.
