De-Bordering the Border:Towards Cosmopolitan Dialogues
The workshop aims to foster and exchange ideas on whether borders can be thought of from a cosmopolitan perspective. If so, what do cosmopolitan borders mean for the privileged few, ordinary citizens and those ‘undesirables’ excluded from the global mobility regime? By bringing together scholars working on bordering practices climate change, migration, refugee politics, border technologies, and the posthuman borders, this workshop seeks to start a cosmopolitan dialogue on new ontologies and methodologies and contribute to a critical political agenda beyond the established ways of understanding territorial borders.
