History talk: Who came up with borders? The creation of borders and nations

University event offered by Aston University

Event Summary:

This session explores why many in the 19th century thought borders would be a good idea, how their ideas conflicted with one another, and how this history still influences current events, from disputes, to diverging ideas about who is a member of a certain nation, to responses to COVID 19.

Full Event Details:

Though we often take nations and borders for granted, both have a relatively short history. This session explores the reason why many in the 19th C thought borders would be a good idea, how their ideas conflicted with one another (what if more than one group wants to live in the same place?), and how this history still influences current events, from disputes, to diverging ideas about who is really a member of a certain nation, to responses to COVID 19.
