"Materializing the Transient: Ethnographies and Museums in the Study of (Forced) Migration" Göttingen, May 14-16, 2020Welcome to the conference “Materializing the Transient: Ethnographies and Museums in the Study of (Forced) Migration”. The event is hosted by the Department of Social and Cultural Anthropology of Göttingen University and Die Exponauten (Berlin-located exhibition agency), as part of the BMBF-funded research project “On the Materiality of (Forced) Migration.”
Our linked webpage is working as the virtual platform for the whole conference that addresses the (forced) migration from a material culture perspective. Below you find the recorded keynote lecture, a section for each panel and the concluding session and the poster presentations. The panel pages contain the recorded panel keynote, a link to the online meeting room and a section for discussions. Each panel will start with the discussion of the panel keynote. Thus, we ask you to watch the video before the panel starts at the announced time.
We will keep the panel sessions in a small scale format. However, a limited number of students and scholars can still join the event. If you are interested in participating, we ask you to send a formless registration as well as a brief explanation of why this conference is relevant for your topics of research or studies to "firstname.lastname@example.org" Feel free to watch and discuss the videos, to read the posters and take a look around our project webpage.
We are very much looking forward to meeting you here.
Your conference organizing team “On the materiality of (forced) migration”
