"Writing across borders" short story competition

The basic aim of the competition is to encourage emerging literary talent among our students. We chose the specific theme of borders on account of our current research activities. These are centered on the predominance of borders in the Anglophone world ranging from historical, political and cultural issues to more literary and aesthetic questions. What is a border? Where are borders? How do they “work” or function? What do they mean ? These are some of the basic questions we have been researching into concerning the ambiguous role and use of borders.
It is hoped that writing stories about borders might just provide an alternative and creative approach to understanding the complex phenomenon of borders in today’s world and, thereby, promote fruitful links between the academic world of research and the artistic world of creation.
