Belonging and Mobility

NIAS Conference 2023

From Wednesday 18 to Friday 20 October 2023 NIAS organised the second International Conference on Studies of Belonging.

About the Conference

The second international NIAS Conference looked to inquire about the field of Belonging in relation to mobility. What if we would study and re-conceptualize belonging as not always fixed or place-bound but rather as mobile? Which narratives and practices of belonging are being negotiated and rendered (im)mobile?

The conference was structured around five spheres: The Body Politic; Belonging as / at work; Homeing / Dwelling;  (Re)making Public Space; and Ecologies of Belonging. Each sphere will be curated by a renowned scholar.

The purpose of this second conference on Belonging was to bring together creative and critical thinkers and makers from different academic and artistic fields and disciplines to collectively conceptualize how (and when) belonging and mobility are entangled.
