Research Group The Borders of Europe

Main content

The research group was established in 2007 and has from the outset had as its main goal to initiate interdisciplinary, international research collaboration focusing on transnational border crossing processes, diaspora, migration and exile experiences as aesthetic practices in European literature, theatre and art.

In connection with the group's research projects, an important sub-goal has been to contribute to researcher education and recruitment through both facilitating dialogue between junior and senior researchers and developing interdisciplinary educational programs for PhD and master students.
