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
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.
