Borders and Borderlands

On 9 March 2020 we announced the postponement of this symposium, originally to take place 20-24 May 2020, hoping that the situation regarding the Covid-19 virus would allow us to reschedule the event.

However, the prospect of our being able to host the symposium in 2020 is now unrealistic. We have therefore, with the greatest regret, been obliged to cancel the plans for “Borders and Borderlands”.

Nevertheless, many of the prospective contributors have agreed to submit their essays, which will be published in 2021 by Cambridge Scholars Publishing as Borders and Borderlands: explorations in identity, exile, translation and transition edited by Richard Pine and Vera Konidari.
