Migration and Diaspora Researchers from 23 Countries will Gather at the Estonian Literary Museum

November 16, 2018

On November 29 – December 1, 2018 the Annual Conference of the Centre of Excellence in Estonian Studies “On the Move: Migration and Diasporas” takes place at the Estonian Literary Museum, Tartu, Estonia.

The idea of this scientific conference grew out of the real life: the word ‘migration’ – often accompanied by ‘crises’, reaches our ears and eyes every day via various media channels. The contemporary world is increasingly defined by the mobility of people, information, services, and cultural practices. To interpret these processes, international scholars from different fields will focus on aspects such as successive waves of migration and remigration; social and cultural adoption in host countries; migration as a lifestyle; sources and methods of migration and diaspora research, incl. life writing and oral history interviews; representation of migration and diaspora in literature and visual arts.

More information on the upcoming conference is available on the conference webpage www.folklore.ee/CEES/migrationdiaspora2018.
