The 6th Global Conference on Diasporas will take place Saturday 6th July – Monday 8th July 2013 Mansfield College, Oxford, United Kingdom.
Call for Presentations
This inter- and multi-disciplinary project seeks to explore the contemporary experience of Diasporas – communities who conceive of themselves as a national, ethnic, linguistic or other form of cultural and political construction of collective membership living outside of their ‘home lands.’
In order to increase the understanding of Diasporas and their impact on both the receiving countries and their respective homes left behind, key issues will be addressed related to Diaspora cultural expression and interests. In addition, the conference will address the questions: Do Diasporas continue to exist? How do they evolve? What is the footprint or limit of Diaspora? Is the global economy, media and policies sending different messages about diaspora to future generations?
Presentations, papers, performances, workshops, presentations and pre-formed panels are invited. Abstracts not to exceed 300 words should be submitted by Friday 8th February 2013. If an abstract is accepted for the conference, a full draft paper should be submitted by Friday 10th May 2013.
