Conference - Migration, Adaptation and Memory: 6th International Interdisciplinary Memory Conference

Call for papers - How do we remember and represent our migration experiences? Who is involved in these processes? How does history remember these events and experiences? What helps migrants and societies to adapt? The significance of these and related questions have made their way into our daily lives. From the refugee crisis to policy decisions, individual psychotherapy to (re)building identities, communities, and memories, this year's conference themes are ever-present. We strongly believe in the value of approaching these topics from an interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary perspective, in order to engage various perspectives on these pressing issues we encounter today. We are interested in all aspects of migration and adaptation experiences, in their individual and collective dimensions, in the past and in the present-day world. We would like to examine the role of memory, the processes of migrating and adapting to various dynamic life circumstances, across time, space, culture, language, and discipline.   Different forms of presentations are encouraged, including case studies, theoretical inquiries, personal reflections, problem-oriented arguments, comparative analyses, and creative expressions. We will be happy to hear from experienced scholars and young academics, graduate, and undergraduate students, as well as professionals from various disciplines. We also invite all persons interested in participating in the conference as listeners, without the obligation to give a presentation.

  Please submit an abstract (no longer than 300 words) and title for your proposed 20-minute presentation, together with a short biographical note by July 23, 2017 to:
