EASA Biennial Conference, Ireland

European Association of Social Anthropologists (EASA) and Department of Anthropology at the National University of Ireland Maynooth will host the 11th biennial conference in Maynooth, Ireland
24-27th August 2010

Panel: Material Culture, Migration and the Transnational Imaginary
Deadline: 1st March 2010

Short Abstract
Material objects are used to objectify memory; as things with their own trajectories, migrating objects are also used to create new links and new relations, positively or negatively affecting imaginations of community and belonging, making migration a crisis of local/global identification.

We welcome papers addressing this crisis and how ordinary people respond to their extraordinary situations through the multiple meanings objects provide.

Early-bird’ registration fees are €180 (non-member)
