This symposium – which is the first of a series entitled “Borders, spaces, and power(s)” – will focus on a specific geographic area: the Americas.
Participants are invited to broach the various dynamics which prevail in American borders, as well as the mutations and transformations these borders have undergone in the last decade, through different approaches. Importantly, even though the symposium focusses primarily on geography and geopolitics, it can be defined as a transdisciplinary event, which encourages all sorts of approaches, whether it be in geography, history, political science, international relations, sociology, anthropology or cultural studies.
Participants can expect research discussions on subjects like:
- policies in relation to the phenomenon of rebording
- continental integration within NAFTA and MERCOSUR
- Intracontinental flows, border crossings and their increasing human cost
- Urban border issues
