Workshop Borders

Non-Military Functions of Outer Borders in Early Modern Europe

Zentrum für Internationale Entwicklung, Alois Wagner Saal C3
Sensengasse 3, 1090 Wien

Seminar, Workshop, Kurs

The workshop investigates the functions that borders fulfilled in addition to military defense. With the focus on the eighteenth-century Habsburg-Ottoman border, previous developments and the subsequent evolution, from the sixteenth to the nineteenth century, were examined as well. The workshop investigates the relationship between the new territorial definition of jurisdictions and new functions of the frontier; how the dynamics of change looked like and what role the Habsburg central government played; how the permanent sanitary cordon was introduced in the first half of the eighteenth century and how it evolved later; how new border arrangements helped gradually create a comprehensive border mobility control regime used to supervise migrants; what were the difficulties in its enforcement.
