In this presentation, Senior Research Fellows Kathryn Cassidy and Georgie Wemyss will be introducing CMRB’s role in EUBORDERSCAPES. Financed though the EU’s 7th Framework Programme for Research and Technological Development, EUBORDERSCAPES is a new international research project that tracks and interprets conceptual change in the study of borders. It is a large-scale project that includes 22 partner institutions from 17 different states. The project is studying conceptual change in relation to social, economic, cultural and geopolitical transformations that have taken place in the past decades. CMRB’s Prof. Nira Yuval-Davis is coordinating work package 9 of the project – Borders, Intersectionality and the Everyday. The central objective of the work package is to promote hitherto neglected areas of border research agendas that address lived, experienced and intersectional (e.g. gender, age, ethnicity) aspects of state borders. The bordering perspective will thus be developed in terms of discursive, practical and interpretational categories that reflect issues of citizenship, identity and transnational migration. The comparative perspective will encompass in-depth case studies that involve internal Schengen borders (eg UK/France) and external EU borders (eg Finland/Russia). The work package will also explore bordering experiences in European metropolitan cities such as London, Barcelona and St Petersburg.
