Border zones can be sites of civic and artistic creativity from which new and more inclusive imaginaries of regional co-existence can emerge. This talk explores the idea of a “cross-border citizen” whose sense of
belonging is oriented by the shifting challenges, opportunities, interests and aspirations negotiated among diverse people who share contested space. Cruz and Forman founded the UCSD / Blum Cross-Border Initiative, a platform for engaged research and teaching on poverty and social equity in the border region.
