Lecture by Anett Schmitz as part of the Border Realities lecture series

Centre for Regional and Borderlands Studies at the Institute of Sociology UWr and University of the Greater Region Center for Border Studies would like to invite to the fourth lecture in the series „Border Realities: Transformation of the border and new conceptual challenges”

Social border(ing) practices and local everyday perspectives on borders: Bordertextures on Lesbos

More and more fences and walls are being built at the EU’s external borders to control migration and border crossings. An emblem of such border practices is the Greek island of Lesbos, which has become a humanitarian operation area since the establishment of the Moria hotspot for refugees. Since then, not only the local infrastructure of the island has been changing, but also the border narratives and dynamics of social borderings between migrants and islanders. The focus of the lecture is on such bordertextures on Lesbos, which can be elaborated through the local everyday structures and everyday cultural “border realities” of migrants and islanders. From this perspective, the lecture will present consequences, challenges, but also opportunities and possibilities for local structures and border realities.

Anett Schmitz is research assistant at Trier University in the Department of Ethnology. She is a member of the UniGR-Center for Border Studies and works on (refugee) migration and border studies, accommodation of refugees in Germany and at the EU external borders, transnationality and transculturality, digital cultures and methods of digital cultural anthropology, ethnography and public anthropology.
