This book has been a long time in gestation, and there are too many people
to thank for their questions, support, provocations, and readings. The dis-
tance at which we live has been a productive factor in our approach to
borders and in our desire to write a book that was truly global in scope.
Practically, however, the experience of collaboration and research has re-
quired travel, and for supporting this we acknowledge a number of sources:
the University of Western Sydney Professional Development Scheme, the
University of Western Sydney Eminent Visitor Scheme, and the Australian
Research Council Discovery Project Scheme (dp0988547).
Along the way we have presented our work to many audiences. The
feedback on these occasions has been vital to the development of our think-
ing. In particular, we are thankful for invitations to speak at the Franklin
Humanities Institute, Duke University; the Collège International de Philo-
sophie, Paris; the Centre for the Study of Invention and Social Process,
Goldsmiths College, London; the Institut für Soziologie, University of Ham-
burg; the Department of Media, Culture and Creative Industries, King’s
College London; the School of Culture and Communication, University of
Melbourne; the Research Institute of Comparative History and Culture,
Hanyang University, Seoul; the European Institute for Progressive Cultural
Policy, Vienna; the Calcutta Research Group, Kolkata; the Refugee Studies
Centre, Oxford University; the Universidad Nacional de San Martín, Bue-
nos Aires; the Tate Modern Gallery, London; the Universidade Nova de
Lisboa, Lisbon; the Institute of International Visual Arts (Rivington Place),
London; the Haute École d’Art et de Design, Geneva; and the Centro de
Estudios Sobre la Identidad Colectiva, Universidad del País Vasco, Bilbao.
