The conference is oriented towards addressing and re-examining, in the broadest sense, the concepts of borders and margins, in contemporary society and everyday life, with emphasis on the spheres of social and cultural practices and human rights. Our approach to these concepts is that of temporal, spatial and social domains and spaces/places, which are socially and historically constructed. The research of such topics encompasses various theoretical, methodological and ethical issues and innovations. We are interested in the following questions:
B O R D E R S
/ what “forms” do they hold?
/ what actors are associated with them and how do they affect them?
/ how do they affect society and culture?
/ how does one transgress borders?
M A R G I N S
how to conceptualize them? /
what does it mean to be marginalized? /
what actos are involved in the process of marginalization? /
With these main foci, interested participants can choose to discuss other topics which address borders and margins. Suggested topics may include (but are not limited to):
HUMAN RIGHTS – POLITICS – ECONOMY – MIGRATIONS – AZYLEES – IDENTITY – SOCIAL ACTIVISM – MEDIA – RELIGION – GENDER ISSUES – EDUCATION – TOURISM
