Description

From Hadrianís wall in Roman England and the Great Wall of China, to walls on the U.S. / Mexico border as well as in Jerusalem, Emmanuel Brunet-Jailly asks why build walls and how human communities border themselves. He will discuss what 'borders,' 'borderlands,' 'boundaries' and 'frontiers' are, and how these words help us understand contemporary issues such as the US/Mexico wall, the Canada/US Beyond the Border dialogue, or the European Schengen Agreement and the idea of a "fortress Europe". Taking examples from around the world, this presentation asks if borders are vanishing and what are new ways to understand borders.

About the Lecturer: Emmanuel Brunet-Jailly, Ph.D Associate Professor of Public Administration at the University of Victoria, BC, Jean Monnet Chair in European Urban and Border Region Policy.
