International Conference: Immigration, Cultural Participation and New Forms of Political Solidarity: Global Perspectives University of Liège, Liège (Belgium)

25 June 2019

Information

The academic literature on immigrant integration has exploded in Europe and the United States since the 1980s (Martiniello and Rath, 2010, 2012 and 2014). It covered a wide range of issues related to economic, social, political and cultural incorporation of immigrants and their descendants. However, this lavish literature has largely neglected certain objects and questions, for example the relationship between the arts and the incorporation of migrants and their descendants, or the forms of political solidarity that can emerge from intercultural artistic practice.

The main objective of this conference is precisely to start thinking about the cultural and artistic participation of migrants and descendants of migrants in a transatlantic perspective. It wants to focus also on the spaces and the moments when this participation intersects and binds to public forms of intercultural collective engagement, whether artistic, political, or both.
