Im/Migration, Mobilities, Circulation

Im/Migration, Mobilities, Circulation

Our broad goal is to elucidate understandings about the production of everyday knowledge and the performance of politics and practices in contemporary societies and how these shape the lives of im/migrant and mobile people. We are interested in exploring overlaps between human socio-economic and material im/mobilities, and the representations of these in terms of aesthetics, politics, practice, and theory. We will
connect the dots between the languages of science and literature, and consider how theory informs and becomes practice and vice versa. In the coming year, we will organize around the contemplation and discussion of ideas emerging from specific texts, to be chosen collectively at the beginning of each term. We also plan to dedicate regular time to works-in-progress by our members.
