Welcome – Personal Note by the Director

The Culture-Borders-Gender/LAB is a place and mode of meeting within the academic community (teachers, researchers and students), a unit of an Area Studies Department (Balkan, Slavic and Oriental Studies) at the University of Macedonia.
At the same time, it is a link between junior and experienced researchers who are active in the fields of Social Anthropology, Cultural Studies, Gender and Border Studies.
Ultimately, it is an academic collectivity that speaks to the wider society, both within and across, in urban and non-urban contexts, along and across borders and boundaries, perpetually reaching out to ​​«our faraway neighbors».
