Open call: Conference on Belonging and Mobility
Following the success of their first conference, held in 2021, NIAS-KNAW aim to help move the field forwards by holding their next conference on the theme of Belonging and Mobility.
The aim is to bring together a diverse and inclusive community of people working on ‘Studies of Belonging’, and in doing so, to provide a platform for the wealth of interdisciplinary and international collaborations active on the topic.
The conference will be structured around five ‘spheres’ where important narratives and practices of belonging are being negotiated and rendered (im)mobile. Each sphere will be curated by a renowned scholar in the field. Each work presented during the conference should aim to locate itself within one of the following spheres: The Body Politic * Belonging as/at Work * Dwelling / Home-ing * (Re)making Public Space * Ecologies of Belonging
Deadline: 30 June 2022. Artists, scholars, writers, and journalists are invited to submit a proposal. Every proposal is to indicate a preferred connection to one of the five spheres. There are four options for participation, each with its own submission requirements:
● Full Session, a panel to consist of 4 individual presentations.
● Individual Presentation.
● Lighting Papers, short Pecha Kucha-like presentations.
● Artistic Presentations, Experiments, or Performances.
📆 19-21 April 2023
