Welcome

Imagining Migration, Knowing Migration: Intermedial Perspectives

International & Interdisciplinary Conference ∙ Julius-Maximilians-University Würzburg ∙ February 25–26, 2021

As COVID-19 (and its subsequent effects on international travel) continues to restrict any form of face-to-face conviviality and exchange, we have decided to switch the conference (originally planned for March 2020) to an online format – to imagine and circulate knowledge through and about migration in the digital space.

To not completely lose the interactive aspect of conferencing, we have decided to hold discussion panels: papers will be uploaded to a closed platform two weeks prior to the conference either in their written form as PDF or Word Documents or as pre-recorded (video) talks, and the conference itself will then consist of live discussion slots, in which we’ll probe and engage with those papers, and examine intersections together.

Our two keynotes and the reading will be facilitated via live and public Zoom-sessions.
