Border Bites were a series of digestible chunks of border research which delved into unfamiliar topics in a fresh and lively manner.
➢ Each Border Bite consisted of between 1-3,000 words on a single border or issue, with the use of visual materials encouraged.
➢ Border Bites were made to serve a number of goals: short policy papers offering quality analysis regarding contemporary border developments, primers on the current status of particular borders or issues, or introductions to particular research questions or the research of an individual border studies scholar.
➢ Border Bites were designed and edited by Edward Boyle, published online, and offered a venue for graduate students and younger scholars to submit their work.
Much of that work was absolutely excellent, take a peek below.
