Fencing the Feral

Biosecurity and the Invasive Other in the Danish-German Borderlands

About the project

The project (2021-2024) investigates the radical transformations of the social and natural landscape in the Danish-German borderland, caused by the construction of a wildlife fence in order to prevent the migration of wild boars and the spread of African Swine Fever. The project wishes to contribute to an understanding of how national spaces and borders are co-produced through the spatial strategies of fencing, discourses of biosecurity and the invasive other.
