2021英国皇家地理学会年会“(在新冠疫情下)跨国移民在城市空间中的边界过程”分会场论文召集

边界和边界过程对于理解当代人口流动性和相关的社会空间变化至关重要。跨国移民在跨越国家、地区和城市等边界的同时,也在通过各种日常活动建立、加强或者消磨各种边界,而这些日常活动及边界过程往往发生在他们居住的城市空间中。本分会场旨在探究在城市空间中与跨国移民相关的边界过程,以及在此基础上的边界变迁、日常经验、新冠疫情影响、种族聚居的地域化、城市权力等议题。我们诚邀各类实践研究与理论探讨,欢迎各位学者投稿、参与讨论!

The  Bordering Process of Transnational Migrants in Urban Spaces with/without the pandemic of COVID-19

Co-Sponsored by t he Population Geography Research Group, the Urban Geography Research Group and the Postgraduate Forum


Theorising borders and bordering process has been pivotal to understand contemporary human mobility and related socio-spatial changes (Rumford, 2006). As a representation of the dichotomy of inside/outside, border could provide both constraints and opportunities for human mobilities (Sohn, 2016). (Un)skilled transnational migrants move across the nation-state borders as well as the municipal borders for personal or familial interests; meanwhile, they also establish various (in)visible borders through their everyday practices (Saint-Blancat & Cancellieri, 2014; Sidaway, 2011; Wang & Shen, 2009). Urban spaces could actively engage into the bordering process of transnational migrants through landscapes, urban infrastructures and urban governance (Smith & Guarnizo, 2009). The borders experienced by transnational migrants in urban space could be in multiple (in)tangible forms and imply distinct cultural meanings for different individuals (Qian, 2014; Rumford, 2012). Also, the borders are embedded in specific socio-cultural contexts and various capitals of transnational migrants (Egbert, 2006). This session hopes to highlight the latest theoretical/practical trend of borders/bordering related to transnational migrants in urban spaces.


This session eagerly welcomes thoughts and researches on how the pandemic of COVID-19 engages into the bordering processes in urban spaces. For example, many cities have established quarantine areas (e.g., hotels or hospitals) for transnational migrants who just finished a journey from a high risk nation. The quarantine border is not only in tangible forms of walls and gates, but also in intangible forms constituted by other urban residents’ fear and estrangement. We look forward to more insightful voices about the bordering process and the pandemic.


This session welcomes papers from, but not limited to, the following themes:

  • The shifting nature of borders in urban spaces

  • Everyday practices of transnational migrants in the city

  • Territorialisation of ethnic enclave in cities

  • Transnational migrants’ right to city

  • Empowering and disempowering of transnational migrants in the city

  • New research approaches and methodologies


The session will be in fully virtual form . We are looking for about 5 papers in this session. Each presenter will give 15 minutes for presentation and 5 minutes for discussion. Please send your paper title, abstract (250 words max.), email address and affiliation  to Yunting Qi (Yunting.Qi.2017@live.rhul.ac.uk ) and Tat-in Tam (Dennis.Tam.2017@live.rhul.ac.uk ) by 1 March 2021.
