Boundaries and intersections -- two contrasting metaphors and yet not quite a binary. On the one hand, these words spatially remind us of Venn diagrams: two bound circles with a space of intersection where they overlap. On the other hand, intersections can be places of traffic, movement over time, streams of cars or pedestrians crossing boundaries. Spatial overlap or temporal crossing--the stability of categories or their rupture. The humanities are constantly defined and redefined by the churning of boundaries and intersections.
