Segnaliamo la call di un interessante convegno che si svolgerà il prossimo dicembre a Parigi. PoP [Performances of the Popular] MOVES, in partnership con l’Université de Paris Nanterre e La Colonie, ha da poco aperto la selezione di paper e articoli per la conferenza.
Riportiamo qui la call, rimandando al sito per ulteriori dettagli.
The international research group for performances of the popular continues to advance the field by creating a new committee in France, to foster conversations and sharing
between scholars, artists and institutions across linguistic worlds. To celebrate this
expansion, PoP MOVES will hold a joint launch event and conference in Paris, to explore
relationships between memory, migration and movement.
Migration is by definition an act of movement. The geopolitical movements of migration
continue to resonate in the bodies of migrants, and these reverberations are sometimes
manifested through popular dance. Migration entails ruptures and reconfigurations of
memory both for migrants themselves and for those who accommodate their arrival. This conference seeks to tease out the threads and tensions between memory, migration and movement within one of the [sub]urban spaces of their everyday unfolding.
