“Complicating North American Borderlands with Transnational Indigenous Histories”

Synopsis: The history of conflict along North America's borderlands and borders have often featured the inherent friction of imposing boundaries over Indigenous landscapes. These border impositions by Canada, the United States, and Mexico often resulted in Native border-crossings, for a number of reasons. Whereas most crossed borders to out of the United States, Professor Brenden W. Rensink explores unique comparative examples of Native peoples who crossed against that predominant flow and into the United States as immigrants, laborers, and political refugees. These narratives complicate our understanding of North America's borders, settler colonial expansion, and Native experiences.

Cartographies of New York and Other Postwar American Cities: Art, Literature and Urban Spaces (published by Palgrave Macmillan, 2018) explores phenomena of urban mapping in the work of several postwar American artists and practitioners of space: Allan Kaprow, Claes Oldenburg, Vito Acconci, Gordon Matta-Clark, Robert Smithson, Rebecca Solnit, Matthew Buckingham, contemporary Situationist projects. The distinctive approach of the book highlights the interplay between texts and site-oriented practices, which have often been treated separately in critical discussions. The book considers spatial investigations that engage with the historical and social conditions of the urban environment and reflect on its mediated nature, reading cartographic procedures that involve walking and surveying as subversive possibilities of representing and navigating the postwar American city. Mapping becomes a critical nexus that opens up new ways of studying some of the most important postwar artistic engagements with New York and other American cities.
