(Im)mobile bodies, travelling stories
Traversing cinematic representations of borderland identity and belonging
This is the second event in the series Mobile bodies, travelling theories: Öresund / Gibraltar. This series is organised by William Kutz in collaboration with Centre for Oresund Region Studies and Think Tanger.
How do artistic and cultural practices shape the construction of collective memory and identity in borderland formation? How do these territorial markers, stories and discourses tell us something about “regional ways of doing things” and the “mental boundaries” that render these places as recognisable from other areas? How might the circulation of bodies and narratives also help us to re-connect the region to other “imagined communities”, and why?
