Schools of thought labeled Speculative Realism (SR) and Object Oriented Ontology (OOO) have recently honed as well as critiqued postmodernism’s conceptualizations of the relationship between (human) consciousness and (nonhuman) objects. SR and OOO have, in turn, been criticized for their often radically speculative and academic methodology divorced from concrete ethical and political concerns that include issues of class, gender, race, and sexuality.

We invite diverse literary and pedagogical approaches to this theme, including papers that respond to the following questions: How do borders, whether physical, linguistic, economic, etc., signal or enact forms of violence?
