Good day readers, the organizers of the 15th Border Regions in Transition (BRIT) Conference have extended the deadline for paper and panel proposals to November 15th. The theme of the conference is Cities, States and Borders: From the Local to the Global. It will be hosted between Hamburg, Germany and Sønderborg, Denmark from 17 to 20 May 2016.
Here’s a brief description of the conference themes:
BRIT 2016 is open to contributions from all over the world, and not exclusively to those dedicated to Western European or North American borders which historically have been strongly represented in border studies. Particular attention will be paid to the conceptual and empirical contributions that explore, from the global to the local, the globalized cross-border metropolis and its flows, the reunited city and its scars, the divided city and its walls, the securitized city and its border controls, the small city and its relative indifference to borders, or the border markets and its overflowing activity.
