Abstract

As national discourses, trade and security work against each other in borderland places. The paper considers the material implications of these discourses on the border landscape with particular attention to historical boundary development, urbanization, and impacts of chronic flooding. Discursive dynamics create spatial incongruities that influence the impacts of natural processes, such as storm water flow. The Arizona border is used as a case study
