Mapping a Borderlands Writing Center

Randall Monty University of Texas Rio Grande Valley


This project has three objectives: First, map the distance between two writing centers at a single institution, the pathways that students take on each campus, the interior designs of those spaces, and the proximities of these centers to locations of contemporary political exigence. Then, these nodes and networks are analyzed through a comprehensive framework that incorporates concepts of Borderlands/La Frontera, Deafspace, entanglement, experiential landscapes, and articulation. Lastly, the borderlands writing center is theorized as a response to the effects of institutional hegemony in higher education.
