Border Stories

Narratives of Peace, Conflict and Communication in the 20th and 21st Centuries

Edited By Beate Greisel, Tanja Konrad, Senta Sanders and Heike Schwarz

Narratives of human existence that cross borders on manifold levels and reflect current vulnerability to the environment and humankind are essential preconditions to ensure an open-minded and humanistic society. This collection covers environmental, ethical, political, postcolonial, psychological, and sociological issues of borders and border-crossing. Combining creative writing with academic essays, this book seeks to incorporate the productive results of the eponymous Summer School which was organized for GAPS and held at the University of Augsburg in September 2015.
