A special issue of the Journal of Frontier Studies allows the reader to look at the frontier not only as a 'real' (phisical) territory on the plane of the earth, but also to trace the connection between the configuration of the territory and people's conception of it. The authors are interested in the factors influencing the formation of frontier on the mental map, i.e. (post)memory, cultural exclusion, prejudices and stereotypes, reproduction of cultural (post)trauma.
