“An encounter between generations, between genders, between different cultures, each with its crises, efforts, hopes for the family. It is the beginning of a dialogue that has never stopped”. A book of Chiara Giaccardi and Peter Nondi.

“Playing Inclusion. The Performing Arts in the Time of Migrations: Thinking, Creating and Acting Inclusion is a collection of essays written by theatrologists, sociologists, psychologists, artists, performers, social theatre experts and facilitators, who describe and analyse with their different points of view and methodologies some experiences where performative arts and practices enact reflexive, creative and active processes aimed at taking care of the complex migratory phenomenon”.
To emigrate is to leave, to immigrate is to arrive and stay, to migrate is to move, often as a result of forced displacement. Most emigrants, immigrants, migrants and/or refugees frequently face difficult, if not heartbreaking decisions when they decide they must settle elsewhere. According to the latest UNHCR estimates, 65.6 million people have been forcibly displaced worldwide by war, poverty, and/or climate change. Many live(d) in refugee/migrant camps where they often face(d) inhumane conditions, discrimination, violence, and racism, while others spend/spent most of their lives in transit camps.
We are inviting scholars and artists to reflect on the im/migrant experience and examine the perspective of the displaced as illustrated/expressed in literatures and/or the arts. Selected contributions will be published by The Small Walker Press, Centre for Studies in Arts and Culture, Marilyn I. Walker School of Fine and Performing Arts in the form of an e-book (https://brocku.ca/miwsfpa/stac/small-walker-press-publications-2019-20/ ).
Concordia University in Montreal, Quebec, invites applications for an Emerging (Tier 2) Canada Research Chair (CRC) in Media and Migration within the Film and Moving Image Studies program. The goal of the CRC program is to ensure that Canadian universities “achieve the highest levels of research excellence to become world-class research centres in the global, knowledge-based economy.”
We are seeking an emerging Canadian or international scholar demonstrating promising and innovative investigations into the relation between transnational, migratory and diasporic movements and the media forms and infrastructures in their contemporary or historical dimensions, broadly defined. Candidates eligible for Tier II chair positions must be exceptional emerging scholars within 10 years of their highest degree at the time of nomination (exclusive of career interruptions). Candidates are encouraged to share any career interruptions or personal circumstances that may have had an impact on their career goals, such as the decision to have a family, eldercare, illness, and so forth, in their letter of application. Please consult the Canada Research Chairs website for full program information, including further details on eligibility criteria.
areas of specialization may include (but are not limited to): the technological,
aesthetic, social and cultural dynamics of moving images across media and in global
circulation; artistic, experimental, and other oppositional media practices that
respond to and represent the intensification of migratory trends (both forced
and voluntary); the multiplicity of narratives of migration and ideas about the
migrant represented in film and media; labor migration and border-crossing
within film and media industries; the entanglements between border regimes and
media technologies of surveillance, tracking, and control; relationships
between media infrastructures, structures of distribution, and diasporic
formations; the mediation of migration patterns beyond South-North vectors;
analyses of the shifting terrains of postcolonial and postsocialist spaces and
infrastructures, the movement across them, and their articulations in and
to how questions of gender, race, ethnicity, indigeneity, sexuality, religion,
class, dis/ability or language intersect with and frame both the patterns and
predicaments of movement and the genres of mediation outlined above are
strongly encouraged. Accordingly, we particularly encourage applications from
underrepresented and minoritized scholars.

Il 3 e 4 aprile 2019 alle ore 21.00, lo Spazio Teatro No’hma Teresa Pomodoro organizza lo spettacolo Eli Ohna – Land of the people della compagnia nigeriana Emage Dot Com Global Theatre, in occasione della X edizione del Premio Internazionale “Il Teatro Nudo” di Teresa Pomodoro.
Lo spettacolo ripercorre alcuni momenti della storia africana: protagonista Emage Dot Com Global Theatre, compagnia di attori Ikwerre, una delle venti etnie del Delta del Niger, la regione più ricca di riserve di gas e petrolio della Nigeria. La narrazione si interseca inevitabilmente con la storia recente: attraverso scene essenziali, scandite da danze e canti tradizionali, sei performers raccontano la ribellione dalla schiavitù e la trasformazione dell’area, un tempo fertile e piena di risorse, in luogo degradato, sfruttato e in rovina. Invocati, si materializzano sul palco grandi personalità della cultura africana, da Nelson Mandela, passando per Chinua Achebe, scrittore di etnia Igbo sino a Ken Saro Wiva, attivista e leader degli Ogoni, condannato a morte a seguito di un processo sommario: esortano il popolo (e il pubblico) a riconoscere la bellezza del patrimonio culturale africano e a ritrovare forza e speranza nell’emancipazione.

Il 7 marzo presso il DAMSLab di Bologna, il Dipartimento di Sociologia e Diritto dell’Economia dell’Università di Bologna in collaborazione con il Dipartimento delle Arti e Emilia Romagna Teatro Fondazione, organizza il convegno internazionale “A World in Transition. In-between Performing Arts and Migration“. Il Convegno “vede studiosi e artisti internazionali confrontarsi sui diversi linguaggi in grado di costruire immaginari e narrative alternative sulla migrazione, alimentare la definizione di strumenti scientifici trasversali, dare corso alla creazione di spazi simbolici e fisici in cui sì manifesta il carattere dinamico e produttivo della diversità”.
Al convegno ci saranno tra gli altri interventi di Ruggero Eugeni, Laura Peja, Roberta Carpani, Giulia Innocenti Malini, Martina Guerinoni, ricercatori del progetto “Migrations-Mediations“.
Qui il programma completo.
A World in Transition. In-between Performing Arts and Migration
Costruire ponti tra la ricerca teorica e le arti performative, oltre le mura del teatro e dei settori disciplinari, in un movimento di andata e ritorno tra dimensione locale e transnazionale. Mettendo in dialogo chi fa ricerca sul campo e chi opera attraverso pratiche performative, la conferenza A World in Transition. In-between Performing Arts and Migrationvede studiosi e artisti internazionali confrontarsi sui diversi linguaggi in grado di costruire immaginari e narrative alternative sulla migrazione, alimentare la definizione di strumenti scientifici trasversali, dare corso alla creazione di spazi simbolici e fisici in cui sì manifesta il carattere dinamico e produttivo della diversità. Alternando interventi teorici e performativi, la conferenza si divide tra una sezione plenaria mattutina, in cui verranno presentati alcuni progetti innovativi sul tema, e sei panel tematici di approfondimento.

Il volume raccoglie i risultati di una ricerca sulla Rappresentazione dell’immigrazione durante la campagna elettorale per le Regionali 2018. L’analisi delle elezioni in una dimensione regionale permette di andare in profondità su alcune questioni importanti nel dibattito sulla comunicazione politica, come il peso dato al tema delle migrazioni nei programmi elettorali o come questo è trattato dai candidati nella propria comunicazione, tra vecchi e nuovi media
