Authors of "Fronteras No Mas" to give presentation at New Mexico State March 17

Kathleen Staudt and Irasema Coronado will give a public presentation about their new book, "Fronteras No Mas," from 3:30 to 5 p.m. Monday, March 17, in the Corbett Center Senate Gallery on the New Mexico State University campus.

sentation is sponsored by the New Mexico State Women's Studies Program.

"Fronteras No Mas" treats the U.S.-Mexico border as an opportune space in which residents can address their common interests in a clean environment, better wages and trade, and respect for human rights. Since NAFTA, more transnational institutions and policies have emerged, facilitating the growth of civil society such as community-based and non-profit organizations. Cross-border organizing remains a challenging and complex version of local politics and residents work and live within a region of economic inequalities and different governments.

Staudt is a professor of political science and director of the Center for Civic Engagement at the University of Texas at El Paso. She is the author of 10 books including "Free Trade? Informal Economies at the U.S.-Mexican Border."

Coronado is an assistant professor of political science at the University of Texas at El Paso.

This event is free and open to the public. It will include a book signing. For more information call the New Mexico State University Women's Studies Program at (505) 646-3448.
