Annika Pohl Harrisson - Participant

Borderlands are places where antithetical elements mix and combine in unexpected ways, where people face choices about how to place themselves in relation to often fluid boundaries which are meant to keep people apart but which they nevertheless cross, and where nationhood and citizenship may be displayed and called into question. We will discuss the vigilant and watchful behavior that ordinary people incorporate into their everyday lives to deal with living in borderland contexts in which their own belonging may be denied; how borderland subjects attempt to transform their social reality individually and collectively through actions that assert belonging, and how subjects are shaped in parallel both with political projects assert the primacy of borders and those that question them.
