Functional Transformation of Boundaries and Contemporary Historic Discourse: Czech-Saxon Example after 1989
Languages of publication
In the past couple of decades the social sciences have paid much attention to the topic of boundaries and boundary regions. The present article analyses the changes in the discursive assessment of the Czech-Saxon boundary after 1989. It focuses on the transformation of the national and transnational culture and politics of history related to boundaries, cross-border regions and cross-border interactions. The interplay of the socio-political transition with its discursive implications and the application of new methods and concepts in social sciences (boundary and identity studies, spatial turn etc.) created conditions for a significant modification of the approach to boundaries and boundary regions. Concentrating on the public and academic discourse, the article assesses the conceptualization and representation of the Czech-Saxon boundary in political and public rhetoric, historiography and museology.
