Identities and Security in the transborder zone between Quebec, Canada and the United States
In the wake of 9/11, the US-Canada border that had been deemed as the most pacified border in the world, appeared under a new light in security, trade and societal discourses. When the Canadian government announced in 2015 that Canada would welcome almost 25 000 Syrian refugees, the decision was seen as a potential risk in the US, mainly because of this 8891km of common border. With the inauguration of the new administration, NAFTA renegotiations and the influx of migrants at the border, as well as immigration related policy changes, the very meaning of the US-Canada border is changing. And these evolutions of the vision of the border are not without impacts on the local scale. New measures taken under the new administration have had profound impacts on border communities. New challenges arise, in terms of impacts of a tighten security on daily life in the borderlands, negotiation of identities in transborder communities, environmental cooperation, commercial relations… This panel aims at assessing the impact of the new administration on the US/Canada border, identities reshaped in redefined border communities. We are also delving into how local and State-level cooperation transcend the changes made to the border at the national level and the remaining specificities of the Quebec/US border and borderlands.
Your paper proposal must include:
–       Your name, titles and affiliations
–       A title
–       A 250 words abstract
Please submit your paper proposal by email to Andréanne Bissonnette at andreanne.ob@gmail.com by November 10, 2017 at 5pm.
