Geographies of belonging and difference

Spatial references can play an important role in social and political developments. In the context of migration and refugee movements or recurrences of strong national identities for example, references to bordered spaces are often used to highlight difference or belonging. This research group analyses how and to what end differentiations and belongings are produced in and through references to space, how they are articulated and how they are purposefully employed in various social arenas. We particularly analyse the relation between political regulation and everyday practices, as well as between media discourses and subjective emotions and experiences.
