Session Description:

The recent transnational turn has inaugurated an outpouring of insightful scholarship on identity construction within global networks. But analysis of identity has been privileged over its corresponding term, the border. This roundtable proposes to interrogate specifically the notion of border crossing in pursuit of its more rigorous theorization.
