Border Crossings

This cluster examines the challenges and consequences of crossing boundaries. When we construct such categories as nation, race, religion, sex, and class, we assume the existence of fixed borders that include certain identities and exclude others. In many cases, at many times, these boundaries are transgressed. The cluster explores how individuals and societies have responded to challenges to their boundaries.
