Resumen: ABSTRACT: Contemporary migration to Europe has been subject of debate in recent years and across a multiplicity of venues. This chapter provides an overview of the diverse means deployed to represent migration as border-crossing, via aesthetic and figurative language, performative acts, identity and social construction, across different media and for a multiplicity of audiences. It recaps main themes and methodologies, some key research results, and emphasizes the multidisciplinary and transnational dimension of the study. Importantly, it suggests what novel conceptual directions for representing migration in the context of Europe have been forged through this book and where this might lead to.
KEYWORDS: migration; borders; construction; othering; crisis; agency.
