Abstract

The borderlands of any country offer special challenges and opportunities not only to their residents but also for immigrants who arrive in the new lands. The southwestern border of the USA, with its bicultural heritage and history, offers particular stresses and opportunities; for Latino immigrants in the academy, those challenges are felt in very specific ways. This paper addresses the experiences of the authors, as Latino academics in the southwestern USA. Lessons for transcultural understanding in other countries of the world are drawn from those experiences.
