Abstract

Die Erforschung von Grenzen erfährt aktuell eine enorme Aufmerksamkeit. Das erste deutschsprachige Handbuch zum hochdynamischen Forschungsfeld der Grenzforschung stellt das interdisziplinäre Sachgebiet in seiner Breite dar und liefert somit eine aktuelle Bestimmung des Feldes. In über 30 Beiträgen aus verschiedenen Disziplinen werden zunächst die historischen, methodologischen sowie theoretischen Grundlagen der interdisziplinären Grenzforschung rekonstruiert, bevor ausgewählte konzeptionelle Perspektiven sowie zentrale Themengebiete vorgestellt werden. Der Band schließt mit einer Erweiterung der gegenwärtigen Diskussion um die Erforschung von Grenzen, indem neue theoretische Debatten sowie benachbarte Perspektiven eingebunden werden. Das Handbuch bietet damit sowohl einen fundierten Überblick, als auch einen detaillierten Einblick in die aktuelle Erforschung von Grenzen. Mit Beiträgen von Christian Banse, Chiara Brambilla, Claudia Bruns, Franck Düvell, Monika Eigmüller, Didier Fassin, Astrid M. Fellner, Dominik Gerst, Sarah Green, Goetz Herrmann, Sabine Hess, Concha Maria Höfler, Wolf-Fabian Hungerland, Martin Klatt, Maria Klessmann, Hannes Krämer, Sabine Lehner, Carolin Leutloff-Grandits, Christine Leuenberger, Gesa Lindemann, Sandro Mezzadra, Marie Müller-Koné, Thomas Nail, Brett Neilson, Marek Nekula, Jana Schäfer, Conrad Schetter, Larissa Schindler, Falko Schmieder, Matthias Schmidt-Sembdner, Markus Schroer, Alexandra Schwell, James Wesley Scott, Sebastian Teupe, Holger Pötzsch, Peter Ulrich, Andreas Vasilache, Bastian Vollmer, Béatrice von Hirschhausen, Christian Wille

Abstract

Across the Chinese borderlands, investments in large-scale transnational infrastructure such as roads and special economic zones have increased exponentially over the past two decades. Based on long-term ethnographic research, Borderland Infrastructures addresses a major contradiction at the heart of this fast-paced development: small-scale traders have lost their historic strategic advantages under the growth of massive Chinese state investment and are now struggling to keep their businesses afloat. Concurrently, local ethnic minorities have become the target of radical resettlement projects, securitization, and tourism initiatives, and have in many cases grown increasingly dependent on state subsidies. At the juncture of anthropological explorations of the state, border studies, and research on transnational trade and infrastructure development, Borderland Infrastructures provides new analytical tools to understand how state power is experienced, mediated, and enacted in Xinjiang and Yunnan. In the process, Rippa offers a rich and nuanced ethnography of life across China’s peripheries.

Abstract

For a decade now, borders in Europe have been back on the political agenda. Border research has responded and is breaking new ground in thinking about and exploring borders. This book follows this development and strengthens a perspective that is interested in life realities and that focuses on everyday cultural experiences of borders. The authors reconstruct such experiences in the context of different forms of migration and mobility as well as language contact situations and are sensitive to the freedom of the participants. In this way, they empirically identify everyday cultural usage or appropriation strategies of borders as vastly different experiences of borders. The readers of this volume will gain insights into current developments in border research and liefe realities in Europe where borders are (made) relevant. With contributions by Christian Wille, Birte Nienaber, Carsten Yndigegn, Isabelle Pigeron-Piroth, Rachid Belkacem, Ursula Roos, Elisabeth Boesen, Ariela House, Ignacy Jóźwiak, Corinne Martin, Erika Kalocsányiová, Xosé-Afonso Álvarez, Konstanze Jungbluth, Florian Dost, Nicole Richter, Dominik GerstSeit einem Jahrzehnt stehen Grenzen in Europa wieder auf der politischen Agenda. Die Grenzforschung hat darauf reagiert und schlägt neue Wege ein, um Grenzen zu denken und zu untersuchen. Das Buch folgt dieser Entwicklung und macht eine Perspektive stark, die sich für Lebenswirklichkeiten interessiert und die alltagskulturelle Erfahrung der Grenze in den Blick rückt. Die Autor_innen rekonstruieren solche Erfahrungen im Kontext verschiedener Migrations- und Mobilitätsformen sowie Sprachkontaktsituationen und sind sensibel für die Gestaltungsspielräume der Akteure. Auf diese Weise werden alltagskulturelle Gebrauchs- bzw. Aneignungsstrategien von Grenzen als höchst unterschiedliche Erfahrungen der Grenze empirisch herausgearbeitet. Die Leser des Bands bekommen Einblicke in aktuelle Entwicklungen der Grenzforschung und in Lebenswirklichkeiten in Europa, in denen Grenzen relevant (gemacht) werden.

Abstract

Focussing European borders: The book provides insight into a variety of changes in the nature of borders in Europe and its neighborhood from various disciplinary perspectives. Special attention is paid to the history and contemporary dynamics at Polish and German borders. Of particular interest are the creation of Euroregions, mutual perceptions of Poles and Germans at the border, EU Regional Policy, media debates on the extension of the Schengen area. Analysis of cross-border mobility between Abkhazia and Georgia or the impact of Israel's 'Security Fence' to Palestine on society complement the focus on Europe with a wider view.

Abstract

This open access book explores how biometric data is increasingly flowing across borders in order to limit, control and contain the mobility of selected people, namely criminalized populations. It introduces the concept of bio-bordering, using it to capture reverse patterns of bordering and ordering practices linked to transnational biometric data exchange regimes. The concept is useful to reconstruct how the territorial foundations of national state autonomy are partially reclaimed and, at the same time, partially purposefully suspended. The book focuses on the Prüm system, which facilitates the mandatory exchange of forensic DNA data amongst EU Member States. The Prüm system is an underexplored phenomenon, representing diverse instances of bio-bordering and providing a complex picture of the hidden (dis)integration of Europe. Particular legal, scientific, technical and political dimensions related to the governance and uses of biometric technologies in Germany, the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal and the United Kingdom are specifically explored to demonstrate both similar and distinct patterns.
