Chair of the Executive Board of LIMES, an interdisciplinary PhD network constituted in 2019 following a successful Marie Curie COFUND application by Thomas Conzelmann and Sophie Vanhoonacker. It brings together four faculties of Maastricht University. Revolving around the topic of the Softening and Hardening of Borders in Europe, LIMES researchers focus on the permeability and the strengthening of borders between different jurisdictions and cultures, and how these processes play a role in the minds and daily experiences of people. LIMES follows a dedicated interdisciplinary design and puts strong emphasis on connecting researchers and non-academic institutions in exploring the effect of borders. LIMES researchers create a wealth of insights on practical border experiences and will make an important contribution to a variety of conceptual and theoretical perspectives.
