Borders...

The Sarai 07 reader, Frontiers considers limits, edges, borders and margins of all kinds as the sites for declarations, occasions for conversation, arguments, debates, recounting and reflection. LIke the other books in this great series from Sarai, New Delhi, the theme is one that lends itself to much interpretation from a variety of interesting points of view...

Sarai 07 asks you to "consider the frontier as the skin of our time and our world, and we invite you to get under the skin of contemporary experience in order to generate a series of crucial (and frequently unsettling) narrative and analytical possibilities."

The space explored by this new Reader is the intellectual frontier. Sarai is circumspect, " we are not talking only of actual, physical borders (though of course we are interested in literal and political borders) that are usually the residues of war, but also of the borders between different temporal registers, between languages, between different modes of action, between different bodies of thought and conviction, between the exception and the rule. Looked at this way, a border is more a condition than a site, more a way of being and doing than a constellation of fixed markers circumscribing a domain. "
