‘Placing’ Europe in the Museum: people(s), places, identities

DEADLINE: **30 March 2012**
 
International Conference as part of the European Museums in an Age of Migrations (MeLA)  European Commission FP7-funded project
 
Organised by the International Centre for Cultural & Heritage Studies, Newcastle University
3-4 September 2012, Newcastle, United Kingdom 
 
Call for Papers 

The imperatives surrounding the museum representation of place have shifted from the late eighteenth century to today. This is in part because the political significance of place itself has changed and continues to change at all scales, from local, civic, regional to national and supranational. At the same time, recognition of changes in population flows, migration patterns and demographic movement now underscore both cultural and political practice, be it in the accommodation of ‘diversity’ in cultural and social policy, scholarly explorations of hybridity or in state immigration controls. These issues, taken historically, have particular significance for contemporary understandings of the role of place in individual, collective and state notions of society in the EU, in member states and in other European countries. How do European museums present societies as bound to, or enabled by, place and places? Or as having roots in places and/or taking routes from, to and through places? What cartographical groupings, borders, knowledges (e.g. archaeological, ethnographic etc.) and traversals order and organise populations into societies in the museum? What is the metaphorical ‘place’ of place in European museums now, what does this say about identities?
 
To invert these questions, we might ask what happens or what can happen, when the ‘peoples’ and ‘places’ implicated in, and at least to some extent constructed in, museum representation shift, change, multiply, fragment and/or move? What happens when the museum desire for fixity is disrupted by new sensibilities towards population flows, multiple heritages and the shifting territories of geopolitical places? Should museums’ representational practices change? If so how? What are the new dimensions of identity construction and production in museums whose physical place is fixed, but whose audiences, with their changing heritages and cultures, are not?
 
Confirmed keynote speakers include:
Peter Aronsson, Professor, Uses of the Past and Cultural Heritage, Tema Q, Culture Studies, Linköpings University, Sweden;
Ullrich Kockel, Professor of Ethnology and Folk Life, University of Ulster;
Annemarie de Wildt, Curator, Amsterdam Museum.
 
Submissions are invited in the following areas:
- Theoretical approaches to the study of museums and place
- Representation of migration and mobility in European Museums
- European and EU political contexts for place-people-culture relations
- Place identities in museums: European, national, local and hybridised
- Relationships between place and ethnicity in European museum representations
- Visitor experiences of place representations in European museums
- Belonging and alienation in European museums

Submissions are invited for individual papers and for thematic sessions comprising 3-4 papers.
 
Instructions for submission
Abstracts of a maximum of 300 words for individual papers should be submitted to Victoria Patton ([log in to unmask]) by 30th March 2012.

Authors will be notified of the acceptance of their proposals in early May. Accepted speakers will be required to submit a 2000-5000-word full paper in advance of the conference (to Victoria Patton by 2nd July 2012).
