Smugglers, Insurgents, and Merchants: The Kuyavian Borderscape at Aleksandrów Railroad Station, 1850–1914
- Prof. Dr. Jan Musekamp, University of Pittsburgh, Department of History

In 1815, European powers established a political border across historical Kuyavia. Soon, this mostly Polish-speaking region developed into a borderscape with vibrant official and unofficial trade networks. The paper looks at the region's development after the establishment of the major railroad crossing at Aleksandrów in 1861. Here, smugglers, insurgents, and merchants lived off a border and a railroad line that linked and divided the German and Russian Empires.
