“Walls, Borders, and Boundaries” series of panels
German Studies Association conference, October 8-11, 2009, Washington, D.C.

On the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, the GSA invites proposals for interdisciplinary papers and panels that explore walls, borders, and boundaries across a wide range of temporal, political, geographical, aesthetic, and cultural perspectives.

Possible topics may consider:

- Crossings: permeations of political and cultural boundaries; movements away from violence and warfare; transnational and migratory identities;
- Controlling Borders: architectures of division and exclusion; techniques of surveillance and biopolitics;
- The Walling of Cities and Extraterritorial Spaces: ghettoes, enclaves, citadels; concentration camps, military islands, extralegal refuges; competing topographies of memory;
- Un/Bounding Visual Cultures: performances, structures, and scenes by artists and activists that bridge, zipper, mirror, and suture;
- Border Lines in Flux: temporalities of human and more-than-human territories, histories, and geographies; confrontations that mark limits yet invite transgressive agendas.

This series of panels is organized by Marc Silberman (University of Wisconsin Madison; mdsilber, Karen Till (Virginia Tech;, and Janet Ward (University of Nevada Las Vegas;
