NIAS invites researchers, artists, writers and journalists to participate in its 2nd international conference in the domain ‘Studies of Belonging’. Following the success of our first conference, held in 2021, we aim to help move the field forwards by holding our upcoming conference on the theme of ‘Belonging and Mobility’.
They look forward to once again bringing together a diverse and inclusive community of people working on ‘Studies of Belonging’, and in doing so, to provide a platform for the wealth of interdisciplinary and international collaborations active on the topic.
