Summary/Abstract: The volume brings together papers devoted to the constructions and destructions of identity that resulted from the changing of borders – both the old ones, long established and sometimes forgotten, and the new, recently drawn-up ones. Taking up this topic was inspired by fieldwork conducted by linguists, anthropologists and historians, who clearly indicate that formally long inexistent borders continue to live in the consciousness of the communities that neighbour them, and continue to find reflection in linguistic and cultural phenomena. Such formulation of the topic requires an interdisciplinary approach, which is why the volume features papers by scholars representing multiple disciplines.
