Nordlit 19 reflects Johan Schimanski’s wish “to propose a theoretical basis for a border poetics by thinking through the border not in its static and mapped configurations, but from the processual and embodied perspective of the bordercrossing narrative. [Schimanski suggests] […] a set of seven processes involved in the act of crossing a border, implicating in turn a model of five border planes with which to organize a border reading” (41). Also Morten Bartnæs and Per Bäckström and Henrik Jochumsen and Silje Solheim Karlsen and Ruben Moi and Linda Hamrin Nesby and Casper Hvenegaard Rasmussen and Jan T. Schlosser and Stian Sundell Torjussen and Stephen Wolfe and Henning Howlid Wærp ponder over borders (crossings) and boundaries (crossings)—in physical, as well as metaphorical senses. The shared working vocabulary includes terms such as ‘hybridity’, ‘liminality’, and ‘negotiation’. Have a pleasant read.
