The Migration Humanities research project at Hansung University holds its first international conference on “Humanities of Migration: Emotion, Culture and Knowledge.” This conference questions the perceptions of migration and mobility as uncontrollable threats, noting that human history is filled with continuous movement. Migration humanities pay attention to the potential of humanities as a useful method of studying migration. This conference has invited eleven distinguished scholars of migration across various disciplines in humanities. They deliver narratives and imaginations about migration in human history and bring us to the bodily, sensible, emotional, and affective experiences of migration in a nuanced and vivid way. We invite you to the symposium of migration humanities in pursuit of diversity and communication.
