Conference Heritages of Migration: Moving Objects, Stories and Home

Deadline 14 October 2016, Call for Papers for the conference Heritages of Migration: Moving Objects, Stories and Home, 6 – 10 April 2017, National Museum of Immigration, Buenos Aires, Argentina, see

This conference looks at the actors and processes that produce and reconfigure the old world in the new, and the new world in the old across the Atlantic – north and south – through constructions of heritage in material and immaterial form.  Its focus is upon the widely conceived Trans-Atlantic but we also welcome contributions that focus on the heritages of migration from around the world.

Among the topics that are on the agenda, safeguarding intangible cultural heritage is specifically mentioned: e.g. “Travelling intangible heritages – the rituals, practices, festivals of home away”, “Diasporic heritage communities” or “Migrating memories”.

Abstracts of 300 words submitted in the conference format should be sent as soon as possible but no later than October 14 2016. Please click on the link below to submit your abstract via the online form:
