Transgressing the Limit: Borders and Liminality in Philosophy and Literature. Proposals for essays due 30 June 2013.

Dylan Winchock & Jessica Mayock

Borders are more than lines cutting across maps; rather, they are wide swaths of ambiguity and reversibility where identities are broken down and reassembled. To cross a border is to leave the familiar for the unfamiliar and, in the process, to transform one's own sense of self by exceeding and changing the definitions of either side. Borders, however, are not only physical places. Concepts of limit, threshold, and border have haunted philosophical discourse since the time of the Presocratic philosophers and remain dynamic elements in the work of many Continental theorists – notably Derrida, Deleuze, and Bataille – and critical theorists, such as Gloria Anzaldúa and Chela Sandoval.
