Book Roundtable “Shifting Lines, Entangled Borderlands”

Scheduled Zoom Meeting Register HERE:

In Shifting Lines, Entangled Borderlands
(Indiana University Press, 2024) Jan
Musekamp examines the history of the
Royal Prussian Eastern Railroad
(Ostbahn) between the 1830s and
1930. The study traces multiple
mobilities, entangled
borderlands, microhistory and
space, and human and nonhuman
actors to investigate how an inner
Prussian railroad line turned into a
transnational force, overcoming borders
and connecting Europeans in a time of
rising nationalism.
