CFP: Critical Anthropological Engagements with Mobility
|Sponsor: Cultural Mobilities Research (CuMoRe)|
Noel B. Salazar
In the past decade, social scientists investigating boundary-crossing flows (primarily non-US anthropologists and US non-anthropologists) have been developing a field of research that focuses on the multiple and distinct movements of people, things, and ideas, the meanings of these, and the associated experiences and imaginations of them. Mobility studies, with its emphasis on agency, capital, regimes, and stratification, enriches current understandings of globalization, capitalism, and circulation across the planet, but as of yet, certain key ideas have not been fully conceptualized. Inspired in part by the (cultural) Keywords (1976) of Raymond Williams, this panel seeks original conceptual contributions that critically analyze mobility-related keywords such as (im)mobility, motility, capital, imaginaries, infrastructure and regimes. By design, the panel presentations on each of these will form the foundation of an intellectual conversation about the interrelationship between these concepts and their analytical value for anthropological knowledge production (and the social sciences at large). If you are interested in participating in this innovative panel, contact both organizers by 10 March 2013. Please submit your name, your affiliation, your contact details, a title, and an abstract limited to 250 words. Clearly indicate which mobility-related keyword you want to analyze. The earlier you contact us, the more chance you have that the keyword of your choice will still be available.
