Borders are powerful sorting machines, and they continue to decide questions of belonging, mobility, and circulation. Not only the dissolution of borders, but also the construction of digitalized smart borders, the expansion of border zones, and the construction and militarization of wall borders go hand in hand with globalization. Borders fulfill their separating function more effectively and in more complex ways than ever ― in the 21st century, moreover, as a global and highly diversified enterprise. Sociologist Steffen Mau will discuss his current explorations with writer Nora Bossong.
