As part of a research project lead by Dr Hugo Gaggiotti (UWE FBL BLCC) titled “Organising in the borderlands: applying research to support families, children and youngsters in Mexican-USA borderlands (Ciudad Juarez, Mexico)”, UWE Bristol and the BLCC under took a visit to Mexico to take part in a bilateral conference. The project is supported by the British Academy of Social Sciences and the Newton Fund.
The bilingual conference was celebrated in the borderland cities of El Paso (USA) and Ciudad Juarez (Mexico).
The main discussions moved around the redefinition and creation of new borderlands and frontiers in the context of Brexit and Trump’s administration and what is currently discussed in the academic literature as the “age of post-truth management and organising”.
