Borders are dangerous, hesitant, unstable, and yet, opportunities for co-existence. Borders are narrow and therefore inhabitable; one can turn back to revisit the familiar or push forward into unexplored terrains. Borders transform and reassemble identities; they define and disengage, untie and unite.
This conference sets out to explore the concepts of border, limit and threshold within and between disciplines, theoretical approaches and methodologies in the humanities and social sciences. Fields/areas of research and topics include, but are not limited to:
Crossing literal and figurative boundaries
Hybridity, liminality, and intertexuality
Adaptation and Appropriation
