Life of the Frontier - Workshop on Debatable Lands

25th January 2012, 12:00 to 19:00, Seminar Room, IAS, Cosin's Hall

'debatable lands ... are territories disputed between established power groups, yet struggling for definition, and ... generalizing their own codes' (C. Lamont and M. Rossington 2007 Romanticisms Debatable Lands, Palgrave, 4). This theme feeds into how frontiers exist as regions of interaction and transformation. What is the significance of crossing-points? What characterizes the variable biopolitics of frontiers? How do frontiers operate as transglobal heritage?

Please see the Life of the Frontier webpage for further details and workshop programme.
