Konferenz [04.-07.10.2016, Luxemburg]: Europe Conference of the Association for Borderland Studies


Vom 4. bis zum 7. Oktober 2016 findet an der Universität Luxemburg die multidisziplinäre Europe Conference of the Association for Borderland Studies (ABS) statt.

Aus dem Veranstaltungstext:

„With the abolition of regular border controls in Schengen Europe, and the fall of the iron curtain, the field of Border Studies has opened up new objects of research and has experienced a noticeable development boost. Although the initial focus was on freight, services, capital and passenger traffic, and the resulting questions in relation to spatial, political, cultural and social aspects, this was followed by social constructivist approaches and relational thinking. The idea of a ‘borderless world’ has become popular, with a certain sensibility for the processes of ‘new border demarcation’.“
