This study uses the Channel Tunnel between England and France to explore the shifting geographies of nationalism, postcolonialism, and legal autonomy in the formation of the European Union. Conducting ethnographic research in Kent the author looks at regional differences in feelings about Europe and at the vocabulary used in discussing the Tunnel. Visual representations regarding the Tunnel are also examined.;200 years after Napolean planned to invade England via a tunnel, the completion in 1994 of a fast rail link symbolizes the disintegration of conventional state borders. While the Tunnel precariously affirms the ideal of a united Europe, it also brings to the fore questions of boundaries between the first and third worlds, colonizers and colonized, and the ""East"" and the ""West"".
