Borderland Brutalities

Violence and Resistance along the US-Mexico Borderlands in Literature, Film, and Culture

«“Belmonte brings an important, timely, and focused study on the various types of both daily and extreme violence that have occurred from the late twentieth century to the present within the US–Mexico borderlands through an investigation of cultural productions by people of the borderlands. More than just an examination, however, Borderland Brutalities is a celebration of the resistance, love, and healing within these communities from a scholar who intimately understands these wounds.” - Melissa Castillo Planas, author of A Mexican State of Mind: New York City and the New Borderlands of Culture

“Providing historical context and connections to pressing contemporary issues, Belmonte captures the effectiveness of cultural production in revealing borderlands communities' experiences with, and responses to, violence wrought by the US and Mexican governments and corporations.” - Vanessa de Veritch Woodside, author of Ripped Apart: Unsettling Narratives of Transnational Migration»

In Borderland Brutalities, Laura Elena Belmonte analyzes how border violence is perpetuated and sanctioned by private corporations as well as the US and Mexican governments and how this violence is represented through border literature and cultural production. Les mer

In Borderland Brutalities, Laura Elena Belmonte analyzes how border violence is perpetuated and sanctioned by private corporations as well as the US and Mexican governments and how this violence is represented through border literature and cultural production. Belmonte examines literature, art, and film produced by artists living on both sides of the border to explore how they portray this violence and how they use their art to actively resist it. This important analysis of the border will be required reading for decades to come and lays the groundwork for additional studies on borderland violence and resistance.
