Annika Pohl Harrisson - New Postdoc at the Department of Anthropology

Annika will be affiliated the project "Fencing the Feral - Biosecurity and the Invasive Other in the Danish-German Borderland".

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 Classical 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.

Fencing the Feral is generously funded by the Danish Independent Research Fund (FKK).
