Borderlands are spaces where people of different ethnicities, cultures, religions, political systems, or linguistic traditions come into contact, often without any one authority exercising complete control. The Borderlands International Graduate Student Conference will showcase new research on the ways borderlands encounters have stimulated the creation, definition, and/or adaptation of faith identities among various groups of people.
