Crossroads-Asia Workshop "Tracing Connections - Explorations of Spaces and Places in Asian Multilocalities"

held at the Centre for Development Studies (ZELF), Freie Universität Berlin held on 20 – 21 June 2013.

Workshop description:

"During the workshop we aim at reflections and discussions on the meaning of
spaces and places in multilocal contexts. The oral presentations will be
based on a selection of empirical case studies rooted in Central Asian and
South-West Asian contexts. Particular attention will be given to aspects of
mobility and migration as well as borderland studies. The workshop is
structured in two separate sections dedicated to one of these domains each
and will be opened by keynote lectures by Tina Harris (University of
Amsterdam) and Paolo Novak (School of Oriental and African Studies, London)
respectively. In the subsequent sessions we will bring together researchers
with different disciplinary backgrounds from the BMBF-funded competence
network “Crossroads Asia – Conflict, Migration, Development” as well as
scholars working in related fields of interest, to present their results
from ongoing projects.
To participate in the workshop we kindly request you to register until 31st
of May 2013 by using the registration form in the attached document or by
sending us an email with your particulars. Participation in the workshop is
free of cost."
