Border Seminar 2023: Migration Narratives And Border Studies

Border Seminar 2023:  Migration Narratives And Border Studies, May 23-25, 2023

Border Seminar is an international conference organized by the Border Studies Group (BSG) working at the Institute of English and American Studies, Faculty of Languages. University of Gdansk. The idea of the conference came from a longing for a better understanding of what seemed to the members of the BSG as a highly undertheorized and misunderstood concept of the border.  We think of the border in as many senses as there are. We are eager to learn from interdisciplinary dialogs, to seek new vocabularies and approaches to break affective aporias or imaginary spells of the border.

The Border Seminar 2023 will be held on site at the University of Gdansk and at the Museum of Emigration in Gdynia. The conference will be HYBRID, with an option of in-person as well as online participation.
