Roundtable discussion between scholars from Saarland University and Petro Mohyla Black Sea National University

In 2018 two groups of scholars from Saarland University (Germany) and Petro Mohyla Black Sea National University (Ukraine) initiated the project “The Bio-Politics of Borders in Times of Crisis.”
Three years into our project, we can definitely say that the borders are still in crisis. At the moment we are all witnessing the process of closing borders because of the coronavirus pandemic going hand in hand with other threats such as economic crises, social inequality, migration, populism, and nationalism, the erosion of democracy, disinformation, terrorism, and cyber security.
What can participants of two research groups bring to the table from their investigations to battle new challenges? What did they work on and what are their findings? What are the future prospects of Border Studies in Europe and Ukraine? Which new topics might be of common interest? How does distant teaching and learning transform the idea of a border? What are the new interpretations of isolation and distance?

Gastvortrag von Prof. Dr. Claudia Polzin-Haumann
(Universität des Saarlandes)

Der Beitrag thematisiert das Spannungsfeld von Sprach(en)politiken und sprachlichen Praktiken, das besonders in Grenzräumen manifest wird. An ausgewählten Beispielen wird gezeigt, wie Politiken auf europäischer, nationaler und regionaler Ebene ineinandergreifen, um auf dieser Grundlage das komplexe Verhältnis von Sprachenpolitik und alltäglicher Praxis der Nachbarsprache besonders im Saarland und in Lothringen zu beleuchten. Abschließend werden weiterführende Überlegungen formuliert.

Prof. Dr. Claudia Polzin-Haumann ist Professorin für Romanische Sprachwissenschaft und Vizepräsidentin für Europa und Internationales an der Universität des Saarlandes. Sie arbeitet zu synchroner und historischer französischer und spanischer Sprachwissenschaft, unter anderem in den Feldern Sprachpolitik, Sprachpflege, Mehrsprachigkeit und
Interkomprehension. Unter ihrer Leitung entstand das Sprachenkonzept Saarland 2019, das für die Mehrsprachigkeit im Saarland und das schulische Sprachenlernen richtungsweisend ist.

Gastvortrag von PD Dr. Kirsten Sandrock
(Georg-August Universität Göttingen)

Grenzen sind ein zentrales Brexit-Thema. Konzepte des rebordering und debordering waren ein wichtiger Bestandteil der Referendumskampagne in 2016 und bestimmen seitdem maßgeblich die Verhandlungen mit der EU. Der Konflikt um die Grenze innerhalb Irlands zeigt, wie stark die Thematik historisch verankert ist. Die demokratische Entscheidung von 51.9% der Wählerinnen und Wähler stellt nicht nur das Vereinigte Königreich sondern auch Irland und die gesamte EU vor die Herausforderung, die Grenzproblematik friedlich und dauerhaft zu lösen um ein Aufkeimen möglicher Konfliktherde zu vermeiden.
Der Vortrag diskutiert Grenzwirklichkeiten und Grenzfiktionen des Bexit. Er führt ein in die vorherrschenden politischen Grenzdiskurse und zeigt, wie Grenzen in zeitgenössischer Kunst und Kultur verhandelt werden. Anhand von Beispielen aus Literatur und Medien, Populärkultur und Installationskunst wird deutlich, dass Grenznarrativen im Vereinigten Königreich hoch emotionalisierend sind und stark mit ökonomischen, territorialen und nationalen Debatten um Ressourcen verknüpft sind. Kunst und Kultur bieten Raum für öffentliche Debatten über Dynamiken des rebordering und debordering im Vereinigten Königreich und eröffnen mitunter neue Perspektiven auf die Grenzthematik in ungewissen Brexit-Zeiten.

PD Dr. Kirsten Sandrock ist wissenschaftliche Mitarbeiterin am Seminar für Englische Philologie in Göttingen und derzeit Gastprofessorin am Institut für Anglistik und Amerikanistik der Universität Wien. Als Literaturwissenschaftlerin mit Schwerpunkten auf britischer und transatlantischer Literatur interessiert sie sich unter anderem für das Verhältnis zwischen Literatur, Kultur und Politik sowie für Grenznarrativen in unterschiedlichen Medien und Genres.

Die COVID-19-Pandemie und die ergriffenen Maßnahmen haben das Zusammenleben der Menschen schlagartig verändert. Besonders in den europäischen Grenzregionen zeichnen sich Konsequenzen ab, in denen im März 2020 Grenzübergänge geschlossen, Grenzkontrollen verstärkt und die Einreise deutlich eingeschränkt wurden. Vor allem in der Großregion mit ihren EU Binnengrenzen mit Deutschland, Frankreich, Belgien und Luxemburg wurden diese Akte staatlicher Souveränität schnell spürbar. Die neuen Grenzwirklichkeiten standen hier im Widerspruch zu den eng verflochtenen Lebenswelten und zertrennten die bereits als selbstverständlich geglaubten grenzüberschreitenden Beziehungen.
Das Rundtischgespräch greift die Erfahrung der geschlossenen Grenzen in der Großregion auf und will sie rückblickend kritisch und ausblickend produktiv diskutieren. Dafür werden Alltagsrealitäten und Protestinitiativen diskutiert, grenzüberschreitendes Krisenmanagement und politische (interregionale) Abstimmungsprozesse bis hin zur Frage, wie die Zukunft der grenzüberschreitenden Kooperation mit oder nach COVID-19 aussehen soll.

"Fictions of Water: Refugees and the Sea"

February 4th, 2020 - 18-20 pm

Saarland University, bldg. A5 3, 2.03

 

This talk is about Ewa Macura-Nnamdi's current project tentatively titled Fictions of Water: Refugees and the Sea which aims to examine the aesthetic and political dimensions and effects of the relationship between refugees and the sea as it is represented in selected postcolonial literary and cinematic texts of the 21st century. In this talk she will briefly sketch the methodological underpinnings of her research, namely, some of the most important assumptions and lines of inquiry of oceanic studies, on one hand. On the other, she will discuss/present some of the primary texts, literary and cinematic, in an attempt to unpack the encounter between the sea and the refugees and delineate the theoretical and interpretative aims of the project.

"Women Love that Shit" - Women-Centered Road Movies Challenging the Male Gaze

May 27th, 2019 - 2-4 pm

Saarland University, bldg. B3 1, HS3 (0.12)

Abstract:

With women increasingly entering formerly predominantly male areas, such as politics and police departments, the film industry caught up in 1991 with two female protagonists in the male-coded genre of road movies. In this talk, I will be embedding the movie in its historical context, draw parallels to the TV show Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1997-2003), and discuss how the male gaze applies to these, and other TV shows and movies. In doing so, I will focus on how these female protagonists are perceived in the world they act in, especially in relation to the male characters, as well as look at how these women use violence and why, as opposed to the violence enacted by men in these stories. I will also discuss the Bechdel-Wallace test and examine the relationships between different women, including both rivalries and supportive bonds. Furthermore, I will address the development of the roles of women in film and television, and how the male gaze has been challenged and the options and limits of doing this.
