Summary

This book examines transborder Latin American socio-cultural and spatial conditions across the globe and at different scales, from gendered and racialized individuals to national and transnational organizations. Gathering scholars from the "spatial sciences" - architecture, urban design, urban planning, and geography - as well as sociology and anthropology, the volume explores these multicultural practices of place-making and community-building across cultural and nation-state borders, examining different agents (individuals, ethnic and cultural groups, NGOs, government agencies) that are engaged in transnational/transborder living and city-making practices, reconceiving notions of state, identity, and citizenship, and showing how subjected populations resist, adapt, or co-produce transnational/transborder projects and, in the process, help shape and are shaped as transnational/transborder subjects.
