The conference seeks to explore the narratives of displacement and to demonstrate the validity of a cross-disciplinary approach which brings together the historical, cultural, social and literary expertise in the handling of text. The conference will particularly focus on time and space representations and on treatment of the theme of cultural ambivalence and identity conflict. The subject of displacement will be regarded as both a migration, voluntary or forced, and a sense of being socially or culturally “out of place”.

Papers are invited on topics related, but not limited, to:

migrations and deportations (expatriation, expulsion, exile, etc.)
journeys, pilgrimages, missions
mobility and place
rootlessness and taking root
foreignness and indigeneity
(re)settlement and (non)residence
nomadism and place attachment
hotels, guesthouses, shelters
multiculturalism, interculturalism, transculturalism
strangerhood and neo-cosmopolitanism
Submissions may be proposed in various formats, including:

Individually submitted papers (organised into panels by the committee)
Panels (3-4 individual papers)
Posters
The conference aims to bring together scholars from different fields. We invite proposals from various disciplines including history, philosophy, sociology, anthropology, culture studies, media studies, political science, law, architecture, tourism, religious studies, literature, linguistics, psychology, etc.

Proposals up to 250 words should be sent by 20 August 2021 to: displacement@lcir.co.uk. Download Paper proposal form.
