The Netherlands Institute for Advanced Study in the Humanities and Social Sciences will be hosting a conference on Studies of Belonging from 9-11 June 2021 in Amsterdam.
This 3-day conference aims to set the agenda for future interdisciplinary, international collaborations that bring together a broad variety of perspectives on the issue of belonging. For this conference we welcome proposals from scholars and cultural practitioners.
The definition of ‘Studies of Belonging’ will deliberately remain open as this concept can apply to a vast range of phenomena, and the conference will be built around six topical threads:
· Place-attachment and Mobility
· Community-life and Isolation
· Practices of Belonging
· Borders and Boundaries
· Seeking Refuge
· Identity, Inequality and Politics
For more information on the topics and how to apply please visit our website
The closing date for proposals is 1 October 2020
