"Talking Borders, Telling History – Border Perceptions from Post-Socialist Central and Eastern Europe" (working title)
Based on oral history reports from borderland inhabitants in Central and Eastern Europe, this comparative and interdisciplinary PhD project aims to shed light on how state borders are perceived and experienced by inhabitants from different post-socialist border regions, and what role the phantom of their socialist past plays in post-socialist time.The project is based on data from a Citizen Science experiment ‘Talking Borders – From Local Expertise to Global Exchange’ that was conducted at the Second World Conference of the Association of Borderlands Studies in 2018 in Vienna and Budapest.
