The Mason-Dixon Line
International in scope and analytical in approach, "Arbitrary Boarders: Political Boundaries in World History examines political demarcations that have occurred around the world. While borders may reflect and affirm the cultural, ethnic, or linguistic perimeters that define a people or a country, this series explores how the migration of goods, resources, and people works to undermine the separation imposed by such borders. Begun as a mere survey line that marked the border between Maryland and Pennsylvania, the Mason-Dixon Line evolved into a symbol of the tension and fear of a nation torn apart by the civil war.
