Border for Transport by train, a “B” word (as Brexit)?
ISite 3i Cross-border Collaborations -> 2021-2022
Organized in collaboration with A. Mukhopadhyay, the seminary aims to discuss the effect of the technical changes on the control of the circulation of goods and people and the perimeter of sovereign political power. The transport by rail symbolized the de-‐partitioning of the European continent, even if the train has been relayed by car and plane, and by the web and social networks for the circulation of ideas and practices. How does Border resist these changes?
The close collaboration between the IRHiS and the department of Political science of the U. Ghent on border issues (submission of a TOURNESOL project in 2021) has led to the extension of this collaboration to the U. Kent by organizing this seminar. It would delocalize across the Chanel the FROD doctoral seminar that I organized at Lille, with almost 2 doctoral students being invited and the others following via zoom.
