AccueilBorders Past and Present. Materiality, Practices and Concepts

Publié le lundi 03 novembre 2014 par Céline Guilleux

Résumé

In recent years, the study of borders and boundaries has attracted the curiosity of scholars from different disciplines and informed a rich and diverse literature. With notable exceptions, most publications on the subject relate however strictly to their sub-field and discipline, paying only fleeting attention to the work produced in neighbouring disciplines. The aim of this workshop is to bring together an interdisciplinary group of scholars from the European University Institute and other European universities and research institutions who study borders and border-related phenomena from different perspectives.

Argument

In recent years, the study of borders and boundaries has attracted the curiosity of scholars from different disciplines and informed a rich and diverse literature. With notable exceptions, most publications on the subject relate however strictly to their sub-field and discipline, paying only fleeting attention to the work produced in neighbouring disciplines. The aim of this workshop is to bring together an interdisciplinary group of scholars from the European University Institute and other European universities and research institutions who study borders and border-related phenomena from different perspectives. In four panels, anchored with the problems of unauthorised presences, border practices at sea, the construction of 'otherness’, and border security, the invited speakers will reflect on the materials, practices and concepts that variably made and make the border. In bringing together a range of different approaches to the study of borders from the early modern period to the present day, and exposing practitioners in history, political science and law to recent research of neighbouring disciplines, this workshop hopes to create a dialogue which will raise new questions, stimulate new approaches and enrich a dynamic and important field of scholarship.
