“This is an excellent edited volume that is innovative, intriguing, and highly topical.” • James W Scott, University of Eastern Finland

“It has several fascinating and original chapters. It addresses crisis as an analytical term, bringing new perspectives on the term, its scale, and its analytical use.” • Synnøve Bendixsen, University of Bergen


The world is increasingly influenced by ongoing crisis, or at least this is what mainstream media and politics wants us to believe. When portrayed here, crisis most often comes in the form of situations challenging a sense of normality, such as with violent conflicts, pandemics, or forced migration. However, crisis is not just a situation twisting normality but can become constitutive of normality itself. In exploring transformative and constructive elements to being in crisis, this volume resituates the view on crisis in everyday life to foster critical and nuanced examination of discourses on and experiences of it.

Dorte Jagetic Andersen is Associate Professor at the Centre for Border Region Studies, Department of Political Science, University of Southern Denmark with a background in European ethnology, European continental philosophy and political science.

Lola Aubry is a postdoctoral researcher at the UniGR-Center for Border Studies in the University of Luxembourg. She has an interdisciplinary background in Political Studies, with a specialization in ethnographic approaches to the political and the spatial.
