Borders have become part of our common sense so much that it is difficult to imagine a world without them. Many might argue that borders are here to protect us and make us safe. But who is being protected and where is this dangerous threat coming from? Borders are not a natural part of life, but are socially constructed.
This workshop will explore: what are borders? What is the historic function of borders? Can we separate borders from histories of Empire? And much more.
