Call for papers: IMISCOE (International Migration, Integration, and Social Cohesion) 17th Annual Conference: Crossing Borders, Connecting Cultures, June 30-July 2, 2020, Luxembourg. Deadline: 1 December 2019.
This conference proposes to zoom deeper into people’s migration experiences by foregrounding how migration is connected to culture. We will explore the nexus of migration and culture in more depth asking how migration is lived, experienced, mediated, and reﬂected through everyday cultural and artistic practice. Thereby we seek to deepen our understanding of the complexity and diversity of migration experiences on the one hand, and the possibilities of connecting diﬀerent migrant experiences and groups of people on the other.
In line with the theme ‘Crossing borders, connecting cultures’, preferred proposals shall feature:
- Theories, concepts and methods in migration research
- Cultures and cultural practice in migration research
- Borders and borders experiences in migration research
