PhD course: Comparative Studies in Migration and Memory

November 6, 2014 - 09:30-17:00

At a time when transnational mobility is both noticeable and controversial it matters greatly that we better understand the human experience of migration: its subjective histories, social processes and imaginative implications. At a time when the movement of peoples is under intense scrutiny the case for comparative investigation and analysis is compelling. It is necessary to explore interaction between cultures, the processes of personal recollection in life-story and oral history, as well as public memory expressed in commemorations, museums and representations.

To this end we invite PhD researchers to learn more, and to talk with experts in the field, during a course on ‘Comparative Studies in Migration and Memory’. Students with varied disciplinary interests from across the humanities and social sciences are welcome to attend. Our team of expert guest speakers includes scholars from social and cultural history; from studies in culture, language and the arts; and from anthropology and cultural geography. The objective of our course is to work with case studies and comparisons, to find common ground in questions of methodology, to discuss together.

Registration deadline: 3rd October.

Abstract submission deadline: 24 October. Please submit your abstract to phdschool@hum.ku.dk.

Venue: KUA, Karen Blixensvej 4, 27.0.09 (Building 27, ground floor, room 09)
