The U.S.-Mexico border has been a locus of conflict for nearly two hundred years and the renewed attention on it following Donald Trump’s border wall proposal amid the ongoing ‘refugee crisis’ has been just the most recent example. While the first part of this tutorial examined the border through a decolonial framework, this second part will now employ a queer lens. Drawing on Chicana/o/x Studies and queer theory, we will analyze the ways in which gender and sexuality have been used to police immigration at the border, and discuss how queer perspectives can help question and rupture the binary divisions the border produces. In doing so, we will also discuss how the border itself produces queer subjects. After completing the tutorial, students will have the ability to do critical research in border studies and have an intersectional and transdisciplinary understanding of borders. Students will organize one session in groups of two to four people (including picking a topic and a reading) and contribute an encyclopedic entry to a handbook that will be compiled at the end of the semester.


You can join this tutorial even if you did not attend the first part in the summer semester. After completing the Studienleistungen, you will usually receive 5 LP (depends on the module you take this class in). Unless university regulations change, this class will take place in person. For any questions, you can contact me at:


This tutorial is directed at students in the humanities and social sciences, including both BA students in their third semester or higher as well as MA students. Students from other disciplines interested in taking the class should contact me before signing up.
