Barbara is continuing her work on transnational identity, from a partly autobiographical point of view. An important aspect of this concerns borders and border crossing. Her life has been spent crossing disciplinary, geographical and political borders. You may not know that in December 1983 I was imprisoned by the Stasi for links between the British peace movement and an independent (dissident) women's peace movement in East Germany. Peace movements everywhere are seen to constitute a threat to the status quo. These links were a prime example of border crossing in the attempt to undermine Cold War divisions.
