HERNANDEZ OROZCO, Guillermo  and  LIDDIARD CARDENAS, Stefany. Border identity in Chihuahua, Mexico, a journey from the 17th to the 21st century. Debates hist. [online]. 2020, vol.8, n.2, pp.227-254.  Epub June 20, 2022. ISSN 2594-2956.

This article presents an analysis of the construction of border identity in the state of Chihuahua. Taking a tour from the seventeenth to the twenty- first century, the results of a mainly archival investigation are organized into different thematic sections. Under a critical historiographic approach and with an interpretive methodology, a trace was established through the recovery of primary documents, useful for the description and interpretation of a series of events that have impacted and redirected this border identity. As a result, different critical moments that have shaped the symbolic representation of the term border in the population of Chihuahua are shown within their context of ideological, ethnic, geographic, and cultural plurality.

Keywords : I history; historiography of education; border identity; identity.
