MAPPING MIGRATION & IDENTITY

An Interdisciplinary Workshop
September 24, 2015 to September 26, 2015

Movements across natural, political, and cultural boundaries shape identities that are inexorably linked to the geographical spaces that people on the move cross, inhabit, and abandon. As conflicts over identities and space continue to erupt, and those from earlier eras remain unresolved, understanding the complex relationship between migration, identity, and space is essential to making sense of the new worlds created by mass movements of people.  The Migration, Identity and the State Research Collective is hosting an interdisciplinary workshop for contributors to its forthcoming volume on Mapping Migration, Identity and Space that takes an interdisciplinary approach to the study of migration and identities.

The workshop is organized by Tabea Linhard (Romance Languages and Literatures/ IAS), Tim Parsons (History), and Anika Walke (History/ IAS).
Administrative support is provided by Kathy Daniel and Toni Loomis.
