The book was inspired by the Erasmus+ Project "Border Education - Space, Memory and Reflections on Transculturality". By adopting an inter-disciplinary approach sensitive to the role of memory in `bordering' processes, the authors examine a range of those processes affecting the lives of people in different parts of Europe. They call upon a range of `border narratives' and `border' representations in cultural media, museum spaces, textbooks, the lecture theatre and the classroom to offer fresh perspectives on border issues drawn from Germany, France, Northern Ireland, Sweden and Slovenia.
