Dr. Blanca Araujo has a forthcoming co-authored book Educating Across Borders: The Case of a Dual Language Program on the U.S. Mexico Border, which has been lauded as constituting “a unique contribution to the literature on dual language schools, both for its qualitative rigor and for the border context that it depicts.”

Educating Across Borders is an ethnography of the learning experience of transfronterizxs, border-crossing students living on the U.S.-Mexico border whose lives span two countries and two languages. Authors María Teresa de la Piedra, Blanca Araujo, and Alberto Esquinca examine language practices and funds of knowledge these students use as learning resources to navigate through their binational, dual language school experience.
