9781845453961: Border Encounters: Asymmetry and Proximity at Europe's Frontiers

Among the tremendous changes affecting Europe in recent decades, those concerning political frontiers have been some of the most significant. International borders are being opened in some regions while being redefined or reinforced in others. The social relationships of those living in these borderland regions are also changing fundamentally. This volume investigates, from a local, ground-up perspective, what is happening at some of these border encounters: face-to-face interactions and relations of compliance and confrontation, where people are bargaining, exchanging goods and information, and maneuvering beyond state boundaries. Anthropological case studies from a number of European borderlands shed light on the questions of how, and to what extent, the border context influences the changing interactions and social relationships between people at a political frontier.

About the Author:

Jutta Lauth Bacas holds a doctorate in Social Anthropology from the University of Zurich with a special focus on migration studies.

Co-founder of the Mediterraneanist Network of EASA, she is a member of the Advisory Board of InASEA and co-editor of issues of Ethnologia Balkanica and the Journal of Mediterranean Studies.



William Kavanagh† held a doctorate in Social Anthropology from the University of Oxford and was a Lecturer in Anthropology and Sociology at CEU San Pablo University and the Madrid campuses of New York University and Suffolk University. He co-founded the Mediterraneanist Network of EASA, he was on the executive committees of two Spanish anthropological associations and was a delegate on the World Council of Anthropological Associations.

Review:

"...provides a rich and thought provoking perspective on encounters and connectivity at the borders of Europe – both internal and external."  ·  The Journal of Cross Border Studies in Ireland

"As befits anthropology, Border Encounters is rich in empirical detail. However, it is also an excellent introduction to border theory, with a helpful literature review. The theoretical framework clearly set out in the Introduction and the individual chapters do collectively illustrate why borders should be seen as constructs and as sites of asymmetrical social relationships...All in all, this is an intriguing and well-structured volume which will be of interest to students and scholars from a variety of academic disciplines."  ·  LSE Review of Books
