The Institute of Latin American Studies at the School of Advanced Study is delighted to bring together innovative research on the history and anthropology of borders and frontiers. Discussing nuanced approaches to studying 'limits', both spatially and temporally that are attentive to the depth and specificity of historical and contemporary case studies is the central aim of this one-day workshop. Each panel will present and discuss scholarship as it relates to frontiers, borderlands, borders, and/or boundaries and the bodies, goods and objects, environments, and/or knowledge and power structures that configure them or are configured by them. Submissions from all regions of the world and from any discipline are welcome.

Sub-themes of particular interest include, but are not limited to:
-Trafficking, Illicit Trade, and Violent Exchange
-Movement, Migration, Refuge, Sanctuary, and Statelessness
-Identity Constructions in Precarious/ Liminal Times and Places
-Environmental and Ecological Timescapes and Landscapes
-Institutions of Management, Control, and/or Liberation
-Regimes of "Truth," Rumor, and Conspiracy
-Otherworldly Powers and Dynamics

Please submit title and 150 to 200-word abstract of your proposed paper plus a one-page CV by May 1st 2019 to vikram.tamboli@sas.ac.uk
