Definitely the most exciting network on H-Net is H-Borderlands, almost entirely thanks to TU-El Paso’s Jeff Shepherd.   Among his recent finds, the Border Film Project, which allows Minutemen and immigrants crossing from Mexico to tell their own stories.  Among the videos, “55 MPH Speed Limit” actually shows some valuable insight from a member of the Minutemen, of all people, in which certain local transnational processes are being interrupted by national processes on both sides of the border as well as a harrowing tale of banditry at the border.
