Borderscapes, Memory and Migration - Explorative workshops supported by the Joint Committee for Nordic Research Councils for the Humanities and the Social Sciences (NOS-HS)

Project: Research

Project Details


Border zones and practices of bordering are embedded in interpretations of the past: in history and memory making. Memories are evoked to explain, legitimate and justify bordering. However, the past could also be used to criticize practices of bordering and to expose the present as a temporary phenomenon, as something that will pass. An engagement with memory could be a means to imagining alternative futures.
