(Im)mobility: Dialectics of Movement, Power and Resistance -28/11/2017, London (England)
The London Arts and Humanities Partnership (LAHP) is pleased to announce the cross-disciplinary student-led conference "(Im)mobility: Dialectics of Movement, Power and Resistance", which will be hosted by The London School of Economics on 28 November 2017 (10am – 5pm). The Keynote Speaker will be Dr Alexander Samson, Reader in Early Modern Studies at University College London. We live in a time in which global mobility is one of the central themes of several political agendas. It is subject to contestation, resistance and attempts of redefinition, in debates that are often shaped around the narrative of ʻidentities under threatʼ. Building on the ‘mobility turn’ theorised by sociologist John Urry (2007), Stephen Greenblatt, in his manifesto on Cultural Mobility (2009), began to explore the ‘tension between individual agency and structural constraintʼ, in both the present and the past.
Some small bursaries (up to the amount of £100) are available for presenting attendees travelling from outside of London. Please note that these are intended for travel only. To apply for a bursary, please include in your submission a detailed estimation of your travel expenses.
