11.06.2021 The Netherlands Institute for Advanced Study in the Humanities and Social Sciences (NIAS)
The Netherlands Institute for Advanced Study in the Humanities and Social Sciences (NIAS) welcomes proposals from scholars and cultural practitioners for the NIAS Conference from 9-11 June 2021
The overarching theme of this interdisciplinary 3-day conference is studies of belonging. The definition of ‘studies of belonging’ will deliberately remain open as this concept can apply to a vast range of social, historical, material, cultural, psychological, juridical, social geographical, and economic phenomena.
The conference will be built around six topical threads:
- Place-attachment and Mobility
- Community-life and Isolation
- Practices of Belonging
- Borders and Boundaries
- Seeking Refuge
- Identity, Inequality and Politics
NIAS invites the multiplicity of scholarly and artistic papers around a single theme with the aim to set the agenda for future interdisciplinary, international collaborations that bring together a broad variety of perspectives on the issue of belonging.
NIAS invites scholars, writers and artists who deal with issues of belonging in their work, to contribute with a paper or arts presentation.[read on...]
