Luiza Bialasiewicz, Ruth Wodak:
Borderwork in the City

Drawing upon on-going research on anti-migrant mobilization in several European cities, Luiza Bialasiewicz, Professor of European Governance (University of Amsterdam) and Ruth Wodak, Emerita Distinguished Professor of Discourse Studies (Lancaster University) discuss the role of new forms of citizen activism and new political aesthetics in imagining (and forcefully enacting) exclusionary landscapes. In particular, they query how such ‘citizens’ borderwork’ allows a wider geopolitics of fear to touch down in particular places, rendering ‘fear-ful’ particular bodies, objects and landscapes.
