CFP "Entangled Mobilities", Biennial Conference of the Finnish Anthropological Society, 22th—23th of May 2017

Biennial Conference of the Finnish Anthropological Society 2017

ENTANGLED MOBILITIES

22th—23th of May 2017, University of Jyväskylä, Finland

Organizers: The Finnish Anthropological Society, anthropologists at the Department of History and Ethnology, University of Jyväskylä

The call for papers of the Biennial Conference of the Finnish Anthropological Society 2017 “Entangled Mobilities” in Jyväskylä is now open. We invite papers which fall within the theme of the conference.

The conference seeks to explore different kinds of mobilities and their interconnections. We ask how spatial and social mobilities are entangled with each other and broader economic, social and political processes. We invite papers which explore following themes: place making; production of boundaries; relationships between actors of mobility (states, citizens, genders classes, generations, the rural and the urban); artifacts and technologies of mobility (new media, material culture, vehicles and food); imaginaries of mobility; movement of ideas and structures (such as education, notions of kinship and family, marriage). We invite all anthropologists and researchers from related disciplines to participate! 

The deadline for paper proposals is 23rd of February 2017. Notifications of acceptance will be sent by early March. 

Please see the list of confirmed panels and panel organizers.

Paper proposals can be submitted for consideration for confirmed panels or without specifying the panel. If you wish to choose a panel for your paper, send you proposal directly to the panel organizers but also send a copy to the organizer (mobilityconference2017@gmail.com).
