From the preface :
Frontiers and Identities: Cities in Regions and Nations, edited by Professors Luďa Klusáková and Laure Teulières, is the third volume published by the Thematic Work Group 5 of the pan-European Network of Excellence for interdisciplinary historical research, The Work Group deals with “Frontiers and Identities”. The present volume is particularly concerned with exploring approaches to the relationship between cities as places of creation, perception and representation of identities and political and territorial organisms, both within the city and outside of it.

In this volume the Work Group has decided to focus on cities as optimal entrées for understanding how people give meanings to the physical places where they live and work. At the same time, by emphasizing the links between individuals’ subjective experiences and their broader allegiances or belongings (political, ethnic, linguistic, religious, gender and so forth), the authors draw the city as a mirror that reflects the wider spaces and changing organisations that lie outside: hence the “regions” and the “nations” of the title.
