MIGRATION AND THE EUROPEAN CITY. Social and Cultural Perspectives from Early Modernity to the Present

Italian-German Historical Institute – Trent / Italy, 18 –20 September 2019

Scientific Committee: Christoph Cornelissen (Frankfurt-Trent), Beat Kümin (Warwick), Massimo Rospocher (Trent)

The LXI Study Week organized by the Italian-German Historical Institute will be dedicated to interactions between migration, mobility and urban societies between c. 1400 and the present. The committee hopes to attract an interdisciplinary group of researchers from different academic backgrounds and nationalities at various career stages.
We have been fortunate to secure keynote addresses from Claus Leggewie (Giessen), Leo Lucassen (Leiden) and Susanne Rau (Erfurt).

Over the three days, particular attention will be paid to the following themes:

– migration flows
– mobility and urban change
– transit cities
– socio-economic implications
– questions of local / (trans-)national identities
– mechanics and infrastructures of reception, identification, hospitality,
allocation & transport
– representations and longer-term processes of integration / exclusion
– methodological and digital approaches to migration and mobility.

Proposals for papers of thirty minutes to be delivered in English are invited on any of the above themes or other aspects relating to the main study week topic. Titles and abstracts of max. 500 words per paper, together with a brief CV (of 1 A4-page), should be sent to Beat Kümin and Massimo Rospocher by 1 March
2019. Travel and subsistence expenses for the selected speakers will be covered.

In addition, we can offer 10 bursaries covering travel costs (up to €150) plus meals and accommodation during the conference to advanced PhD students or postdocs (who submitted their theses after 1 January 2015) wishing to simply attend the conference without presenting.

Please send bursary applications (consisting of a CV and a reference letter from an academic) to the same two email addresses by 1 March 2019.
Substantial time will be allocated for discussion and informal exchange among
the participants. For further information or enquires please contact one of
the committee members or the Institute directly.
