Heritages of Migration: Moving Stories, Objects and Home
Dates: 6 – 10 April 2017
Location: Buenos Aires, Argentina

Call for Papers Deadline: 14th October 2016

Short Description: In their movements between old and new worlds, migrant communities carry with them practices, traditions, objects and stories that are transmitted across new communities and through generations. This conference seeks to explore the layering of global cultures that has been produced by centuries of global migration, and its effect on memory, identity and belonging, as well as its effects on tangible and intangible heritage. The conference is designed to encourage provocative dialogue across the fullest range of disciplines. Thus we welcome papers from academic colleagues in a wide range of fields. Please see the conference website for full details and call for papers.
