Workshop: Embodied Experience of Transnational Movements
Next Friday (17 July) a transdisciplinary workshop to the topic "Embodied Experience of Transnational Movements: Historical Trajectories and Contemporary Dynamics " takes place at the BGHS.
The workshop aims to advocate expansion and multiplication of the scales of analysis in exploring the nexus of the transnational, movement, and the body. Through discussions of papers and presentation of posters, it seeks to investigate how bodies have not only moved through, but have also been moved by cross-border spaces, while taking into consideration historical contexts and social, economic, and political processes.
Welcome Address: Prof. Thomas Faist, PhD, Faculty of Sociology, Bielefeld University
Keynote Lecture: Dr. Kristin Kastner, Institute for Ethnology, Ludwig Maximilian University, Munich (LMU)
Organisers: Mahshid Mayar and Cleovi Mosuela (BGHS)
