  • Workshop

This interdisciplinary workshop aims to bring scholars from different disciplines in the humanities and social sciences together in order to explore and compare national borderlines and migrant mobility across such borders. The focus will particularly be on those borders that have been re-assessed and re-shaped in more recent times because of new international conflicts (e.g. Russia, Ukraine, India, Pakistan), refugee mobility (e.g. Hungary, Greece, the EU) and intensified nationalisms (e.g. USA, Turkey, EU, Israel), undocumented immigration and crime.

How have global migrant mobility, economic globalization, nationalist populism and international crime affected border policies? How have new surveillance technologies transformed border protection and border crossing? How are contemporary (post-9/11 and post 2015) border regimes represented in literature, film, mass media and the arts?

See attached programme for more details.

Evenemanget hålls på engelska.
