Event description
Sharing Borders Symposium

About this Event

In a time of heightened consciousness around borders, at a variety of scales from the geopolitical to the individual, this symposium aims to facilitate international and transdisciplinary dialogue on the subject of borders, both visible and invisible. We are interested in the possibilities of sharing borders; of thinking through the ways in which borders rub up against each other, intersect, overlap, blur, can be crossed, and disappear. This might include, but is not exclusive to, borders of the spatial, physical, cultural, social, historical, and the intellectual.

The symposium will take place on Thursday 21 February 2019 at the Institute of Advanced Studies UCL with a keynote lecture from Professor Irit Rogoff (Goldsmiths).

Location: Common Ground, Institute of Advanced Study, South Wing, Wilkins Building, UCL, Gower Street, London, WC1E 6BT
