The research circle Understanding Migration in the Nordic and Baltic Countries is pleased to announce the call for our summer 2019 symposium in Roosta, Estonia, to be held Sunday, July 28 through Sunday, August 4, 2019.
During this session we will explore the dual framework of loss and remaining, considering both terms as both concepts and as as experience.
Humans and non-humans are exposed to loss through war, displacement, abuse, disease, ecological changes, death, and detention. By connecting different aspects of loss—landscapes, affect, and memory—we wish to explore the violence of loss as well as its hopeful corollary, as loss can also force upon us the question of what remains or what may emerge.
For this symposium we seek to bring together individuals from diverse disciplines and practices, including anthropology, cultural studies, geography, citizenship and diaspora studies, health, ecology, journalism, art, filmmaking, and photography, among others.
Who should apply?
We are interested in contributions that address a range of concerns, artistic, legal, ethical, theoretical and pragmatic. The idea of the study circle is to bring together a diverse and motivated group of people to share projects and work collaboratively through complicated questions related to the chosen topic. In this spirit, we invite artists, established and emerging scholars, practitioners, and others directly concerned with the theme of our symposium to apply with prepared presentations and/or advanced stage works-in-progress to share and discuss in an open, cross-disciplinary environment.
As we are part of the Nordic Summer University, our circle is fundamentally interested in the Nordic and Baltic countries. However, we strongly encourage submissions that speak to the symposium’s theme and subject matter, even absent a direct geographical link to the Nordic and Baltic region. The goal of the research circle is to encourage cross-disciplinary engagement, and likewise, we seek always to expand and deepen cross-contextual feedback and exchange.
We encourage participants to craft their presentations in the format that they find most suitable, however, please note that the maximum duration of each presentation, including time for follow-up discussion, will be 45 minutes. Those who wish to attend the symposium without making a presentation are welcome to apply, but we encourage everyone to actively contribute to the group by reading participant papers and taking part in collective discussions.
