Who draws the lines (and points the surveillance cameras) to make sure everyone knows their place? In Annie Goldson's "Counter Terror," the threat of violence and harassment experienced by nationalists when they cross the border of Northern Ireland is described in chilling detail; the abritrariness and impact of "where the line is drawn" is enacted in Dan Martin's "An international Fiction"; and community festival in the South Bronx shows how cultures, through television, can foster connections across borders in "From One Bantustan to Another".
