Conference: Migration, Time, and Temporality, 04.-05.05.2023, St. Pölten

Research Network for Interdisciplinary Regional Studies – first; Univ. of Vienna; Slovenian Migration Institute ZRC SAZU

Time: 04.-05.05.2023
Venue: FH St. Pölten, 3100 St. Pölten, FutureLab

In the early 2000s migration research expanded to embrace a broad conception of mobility that included short distances, circular movements, and no movement at all. This paradigmatic shift sparked interest in the myriad ways that time and temporality intersect with the experience and regulation of migration. The conference will pursue this line of inquiry and stimulate discussions between a diverse range of scholars active in the historical and social sciences. The conference is the second of the series „(Researching) Migration: On New Paths, in Each Direction?“ The first conference took place last year at the University of Vienna and centred on Spaces and Locations of Migration.
