borders, Habsburger monarchy, discussion
The project overview
The project asks: (1) what do borders mean to border scholars? (2) What do borders mean to young adults from the (ex-) Habsburg area? And: (3) what new knowledge does a global encounter between non-trained and trained border experts reveal? The experiment will gather 100 face to face dialogues about the meaning of borders. The project will also host a global digital café for 100 working days on a webpage, where parts of the 100 dialogues are posted and commented on through chatting. This page will report how scientific knowledge on the global meaning(s) of borders is generated in a cumulative collective learning experience.
What happens with the contributions of Citizen Scientists?
The contributions will be archived at the University of Vienna. The project organisers consider applying for follow-up funding.
