This article is devoted to analyzing how lifestyles typical in the modern world, related to migration and work, modify one's perspective on the local space in the context of a bor¬derland and become the basis for constructing a specific concept of locality. Such a concept, recognized in the researched cities of southern Poland, seems to be a regional (i.e. Central European) form of circumstances identified by R. Robertson as glocalization. The analysis of empirical material is preceded by a description of the theoretical sociological context of the researched phenomena, i.e. different ways researchers have framed space, with special attention given to relational concepts of space (M. Castells, J. Urry), which find their analogies in the empirical material. The analysis of individual interpretations of local space focuses on the issue of such representations of physical space, which underline its relational, network character. Next, the consequences of such an understanding of space for the interpretation of locality, i.e. all that can be described as close, homely, related to place, are analyzed. These consequences, termed as the extension and transgression of locality, do not follow solely from the assumptions concerning the nature of space made by the respondents. A factor responsible for reshaping their representation of locality is, first of all, migration in all its aspects and forms, i.e. emigration from the researched communities, immigration from the outside, internal and international migration, from rural to urban areas. In the specific conditions of the borderland it is possible to see that locality in the eyes of the respond¬ents crosses national and state boundaries. A vision of locality is reflexively confronted with an absolutist understanding of national and state space. In the testimonies there are visible attempts at lifting the border, contesting such an understanding of space. The choice of a relational, postmodern narration resembles the specific situation of borderland-ness of migrating persons.
