Borders, Culture and Globalization
Excerpt

“Ideas, people, commodities, and capital are flowing across borders like never before, creating new possibilities for cultural change. Political borders are, in this process, being moved and even transcended, their meaning redefined. These are cultural and political acts. On the other hand, these processes have been challenged by construction of new boundaries and barriers, as people try to defend existing conceptions of border culture, identity and belonging.”

Canada's Fluid Borders
Excerpt

''Popular understanding may conceive of borders as formal boundaries separating the territories of different countries – or perhaps the administrative locations ("ports of entry") at which individuals or goods pass from the territory of one country to another. However, the continuing growth and diversification of trade, investment, travel, and various forms of migration increase the importance and interaction of bordering processes.''
