The “transnational turn” in U.S. historiography has made scholars aware of the interdependence of U.S. history on the history of the rest of the world. It has had a particularly significant impact on intellectual and cultural history, which is now written with an eye towards international currents and contexts. This graduate readings class will present several significant examples of works that use transnational projects—some set in the borderlands, some not—to generate new insight into the history of the United States. We will use their examples to think through how borderlands history anticipates and can take advantage of the transnational turn.
