Current research project
European borders as
In some sense, borders have made “Europe.” Perhaps nowhere is this more true than along Germany’s borders with France and Poland. The Rhine and Oder-Neisse river systems have functioned as markers of the post-1945 settlement, spaces of integration, and sources of shared problems. “Fluid Boundaries” aims to examine how citizens along these borders related to one another in everyday life.
