CfP: Homing Mid-Term Symposium - Trento, June 3-4 2019

19 March 2019

HomING: displacement, suspension, projections and achievements in making home on the move.


Where: Trento, June 3-4 2019. 

Deadline: April 7, 2019

HOMInG – the home-migration nexus, an ERC-StG (678456, 2016-2021) based at the University of Trento, will host a mid-term symposium in Trento next June 3-4. The symposium will be on HomING: displacement, suspension, projections and achievements in making home on the move. This event aims to open up the conversation between HOMInG’s researchers, who will present their preliminary findings, and colleagues and practitioners interested in questions of home and migration across national and disciplinary borders. While the notion of home has been extensively studied from within, migrant and refugee life trajectories make for a major biographical, research and political field to study it from without: as a matter of disruptions, displacements and tentative replacements, rather than as a sedentary and “given” condition. Yet, the study of the processual, temporal and reversible side of the home experience – in a nutshell, homing – has to deal with a variety of substantive and methodological challenges. This symposium aims to address them through nine sessions, each of them convened by a member of the HOMInG + HOASI team [more info:].
