Social factors such as race, gender, and class influence relationships of power between individuals and groups, separating those with access to cultural, political, and financial resources from those without.  Functioning as overlapping lenses through which to examine cultural texts, they can be used as tools with which to condone or contest repression and domination in the daily lives of individuals.

Scholarship on the global Middle Ages has flourished in recent years, examining the role that a

global community played in the medieval period. Such work demonstrates the remarkable links

between various civilizations in the medieval period and the extent to which the Middle Ages truly

were a hotbed of trade. Recent scholarship has considered the cultural interactions of trade, literary

transmission, pilgrimage, religious conversion, explorers, colonization, and military expeditions. For

instance, literary scholars have shown that the story of Siddhartha Gautama, the Buddha, traveled from

India through texts in Armenian, Arabic, Ethiopic, Georgian, Greek, Latin, Russian, and other versions,

Spaces / Borders / Identities in Europe

The panel “Spaces / Borders / Identity” deals with the spatial dimension of migration movements in Europe and focuses especially on aspects of identity formations und identity negotiations in border spaces. It is primarily concerned with the discussion of migration as a border-crossing process that challenges spatial borders and that enables and necessitates the constitution of complex identities. It also considers translocal and transnational identities in flux, as they can be described by theoretical concepts important to cultural studies such as orientalism (Edward Said), “third space” and hybridity (Homi Bhabha), contact zones (Mary Louise Pratt) and border spaces as heterotopias.
