Borders are sites of contestation worldwide and have undergone a fundamental transformation within the last decades. “Border struggles” at and around borders thereby play a crucial role in (de)stabilizing certain societal orders and accordingly border and migration regimes. During its 16 sessions, the conference „Contesting 21st Century B/Orders“ aims to discuss a range of border and order concepts from socio-symbolic to geopolitical perspectives. By bringing together scholars from different disciplinary backgrounds, the conference wants to deepen the understanding of how the borders of the contemporary world are shaped and how societal orders in the 21st century are changing through new forms of border and boundary drawing.
The conference is organized by the Viadrina Center B/ORDERS IN MOTION which celebrates its 10th anniversary this year, in collaboration with the research networks ”Borders in Globalization” (BIG) and the „Transfrontier Euro-Institut Network” (TEIN).
Keynote Speakers: Marie Sandberg (Univ. Copenhagen) and Elizabeth Vallet (BIG, Univ. du Québec à Montréal), Roundtable Speakers: Sabine Hess (Univ. Göttingen), Emanuel Brunet-Jailly (Univ. Victoria), Elżbieta Opiłowska (Univ. Wroclaw), Astrid Fellner (Univ. Saarland) and many others.
