Rebordering: Reflections in relation to (post)socialism

Thursdays 14.00 - 15.30
Seminar Room, Pauling Centre, 58a Banbury Road, Oxford

This seminar series aims to explore bordering and migration in relation to the global condition of (post)socialism. Contributions will collectively address the question of how the collapse of Eastern European and Soviet socialisms has effected shifts in migration and bordering practices and politics, modes of cohabitation, as well as politics and analytics that aim to critically engage the current historical conjuncture.

Convened by Dace Dvenovska
