This is the study programme for 2019/2020. It is subject to change.


The course will analyse borders - as signifying states, nations and localities, defining territory in a geographic as well as a legal sense or as socio-cultural space. Borders as division lines between "outside" and "inside" define and construct migration movements. The transgression of these lines questions concepts of citizenship. Major discourses in political theory as well as cultural studies will be addressed.
