Borders: Life On the Fringes of Area Studies

The lectures are organized by the LIAS Ph.D Council. All are welcome to attend.

The LIAS Ph.D Council organizes the ‘Borders’ lecture series to enrich the life of LIAS, providing Leiden University students with a series of lectures that give insight into metaphorical and practical bordering processes, based partly on the recognition that one is all too often given to focusing on centers at the expense of fringes, the core at the expense of the periphery, when in fact we live in a world of borders both physical and metaphorical, many of them far closer than we realize. 2017 lectures will be added as the dates are confirmed.
