Tensions of Europe 2006

Technology and Rethinking European Borders

Second Plenary Conference of the Tensions of Europe Network and Launch of the Tensions of Europe Research Programme

Lappeenranta, Finland May 24th - 28th 2006

This conference will focus on technical change, transnational European history, and tensions of borders. Borders are commonly seen as boundaries created between nation-states but they also reflect many ways in which people, ideas, identities, and things are classified, brought together, and kept separate.

This conference will explore the crucial related roles of technologies and borders in recent European history and in the process of European integration. It also will stimulate researchers of all levels of experience both to cultivate multinational research cooperation and to develop further the multidisciplinary Tensions of Europe Research Program and Intellectual Agenda.
