The SCRIPTS Project "Gender, Borders, Memory" (GBM) examines the role of gender and memory in the context of borders and border regions in the liberal script. It analyzes to which extent different impressions of gender and gender roles, both past and present, have influenced the development of borders and border conflicts in liberal regimes. The project will research and use a case study of the separatist movement of Catalonia, examining images, symbols, and arguments relating to gender and memory in the in the context of mobilization and protest. The significance of colonial memories, for example, the siege of Barcelona in 1714, the Spanish-American War in 1898, or the Catalonian suffrage movement in the early 20th Century will play a central role in the analysis of the search for Catalonian self-determination from a gender-specific perspective.
