This bibliography is number 98f in the series “Bibliographies in Gender and Women’s Studies,” published by the University of Wisconsin System Office of the Gender and Women’s Studies Librarian.


Recent local, national, and global events have placed a spotlight on the interconnected, global dimensions of human experience—and deep patterns of global inequity. This bibliography considers the global dimensions of gender, migration, identity, and freedom—in terms of both mobility and basic needs—as well the pressing need for global redistributions of resources and decision-making. We include resources that consider a range of identities across the life course and gender spectrum. In addition to resources about international borders and challenges, we highlight those that explore the human experience at borders and during migrations into and within the U.S. and the struggles of queer and people of color at the U.S. border. We also include resources that focus on transformative spaces of justice, reparations, and decolonization against structures of institutionalized racism, sexism, and other forms of oppression.
