Migration and Contemporary Border Regimes: Sovereignty, Surveillance, Survival
Markus Heide (Uppsala University) hosted an international workshop on Migration and Contemporary Border Regimes: Sovereignty, Surveillance, Survival on January 24 and 25, 2020.
The interdisciplinary workshop brought together scholars from different disciplines in the humanities and social sciences for exploring and comparing national borderlines and migrant mobility across such borders. Scholars discussed questions such as: How have global migrant mobility, economic globalization, nationalist populism and international crime affected border policies? How have new surveillance technologies transformed border protection and border crossing? How are contemporary (post-9/11 and post 2015) border regimes represented in literature, film, mass media and the arts? The hostfilm homepage and the hostfilm intellectual products formed the basis for discussion.
