Published on Wednesday, 18 December 2019

For the last decade, borders in Europe have been back on the political agenda. Border research has reacted to that and is forging new ways of thinking and analysing borders. The book release (2020) is following up this development and promotes a perspective that focuses on the everyday experience of borders.

The 16 book authors reconstruct experiences with and due to borders in the context of various forms of migration and mobility as well as language contact situations as well as looking at the scope for action of those involved. In this way in the twelve contributions everyday border usage or appropriation strategies are identified empirically as highly diverse experiences of borders.

Six authors from the UniGR-Center for Border Studies have contributed to the English language book published as volume 1 in the "Border Studies. Cultures, Spaces, Orders" series by the publisher Nomos.
