We were able to add an extra day on methods of mobilities studies!
Panel 1: The mobility of people and its impact on the nation-state and its regulatory arrangements. Papers shall explore the processes by which the transnational practices of migrants, their ties and forms of belonging (e.g. transnational mobilization, flexible citizenship) challenge the regulatory mechanisms of their states of origin and settlement policies.
Panel chair: Hans-Rudolf Wicker
Panel 2: The mobility of models of built forms. How is urban globalization related to, and shaped by, mobile ideas and practices of spatial and physical design and planning? Papers will analyze the production, global circulation and local reception of blueprints for the design of built forms claiming universal applicability.
Panel chair: Ola Söderström
Panel 3: The mobility of norms and forms of bioscientific knowledge, health care policies, medical technologies, and medical and patient practices. Papers should consider transnational exchanges in the medical care of bodies across geographic and cultural borders. Panellists will explore how global movements of biomedicine/molecular science, population health policies, reproductive technologies, and body parts are reshaping public vs. private medical care and state/civil society relations.
Panel chair: Shalini Randeria
Panel 4: The mobility of models and institutions of higher education. Papers will examine the transnationalization of academic and educational institutions, and its effects on host societies’ subjects and policies. The aim is to shed light on the reconfiguration and reconstitution of systems of higher education under contemporary globalization.
Panel Chair: Francesco Panese
Panel 5: The mobility of actors within built environments. Papers are expected to consider the transforming effects of rapid globalization on the relationship between built environments and people’s daily mobility. Of particular interest is people’s ability to craft creative mobility strategies in order to negotiate and adapt to particular social, political, and economic contexts.
Panel chair: Vincent Kaufmann
Panel 6: While increased levels of globalization are characterized by increased mobility, such mobility has led to all sort of tensions in receiving societies. Reactions and resistances to movements of people, goods, ideas and practices are thus being observed. This panel addresses various instances of opposition to, and mobilization against, mobilities across time and space.
Panel chair: Gianni D’Amato
Please include author(s) names, institutional affiliation, contact and name of presenter, and an indication of the panel to which the paper is submitted.
This seminar is expected to yield significant results in terms of prospects for publications as well as further scientific collaboration. There will therefore be a limited number of papers selected for presentation in each session. To help us assess the suitability of each proposal, abstracts should include
send us a short e-mail by 2 June 2010 to indicate your interest, and which days (Sunday, Monday, Tuesday) you plan to attend, so that we can anticipate demand. Registration and participation is free.
