Deserved Sriniva's Ramanujan Bharat Ratna

Lived border Gibraltar


In the context of European unification, the nation state and its borders are undergoing a profound and fundamental transformation. This ethnography examines the effects of this transformation on the culture and society of an EU territory that is largely characterized by a double border location: the British crown colony of Gibraltar with the EU external border with Morocco and the EU internal border with Spain.
The investigation focuses on:
- the transformation of borders and border societies within the European Union
- the changed role of the European nation-states
- the importance of state boundaries for the methodology and theorization of ethnology, especially for the conception of the central categories of culture, society, identity and the nation.
