De ma visite  à Ellis Island le 24 mars 2014, il reste des notes – et deux photographies. Deux seulement parmi des centaines d’autres, symboliquement prises alors que le ferry  « Miss Liberty » s’éloignait de la petite île  – la fatigue, le froid, la crainte de manquer le bateau, sont à l’origine de l’effacement accidentel de la carte mémoire,  disparition qu’aucun logiciel de récupération ne réussira à rattraper : les clichés ne sont plus que cases vides, que petits fantômes.

CFP Memory on the Move: Theory and Methodology of Memory and Migration. Budapest 29-30 September 2014


Memory on the Move: Theory and Methodology of Memory and Migration

Workshop, Budapest 29-30 September 2014 

The dominant framework and metaphor for memory studies has been place and nation. However, in a society characterized by mobility and migration, by transnational trajectories across borders, place and nation as point of departures for memory studies have become untenable. Moreover, they have failed to respond to an analysis of the agency of diasporic and transnational communities.

CFP The Visual Production of Migration. Images, Icons, Codes

imisThe Visual Production of Migration. Images, Icons, Codes
The media coverage and debate of migration and integration is generating a continuous and swiftly growing stream of visual representations. How does migration research respond to this markedly increasing importance and contemplation of the role of images, icons and codes – the visual turn?

In 2014, the Institute for Migration Research and Intercultural Studies (IMIS) at the University of Osnabrueck devotes a volume of its Journal (IMIS-Beiträge) to the visual aspects of migration debates. From an interdisciplinary perspective, it aims to identify the significance of visual phenomena for societal negotiations over migration.

We assume that in interaction with migration phenomena, their visualisation and interpretation, images can yield agency and hence have an effect on social practices and especially on migration policies. The publishers invite contributions from the broad spectrum of expertise in interdisciplinary migration research, seeking to link theoretical reflection inspired by Visual Culture Studies with a case study.

We particularly welcome contributions located within a timeframe stretching from the middle of the 20th century to the present.

Contributions are accepted and published both in English and German.

Interested authors are requested to submit proposals of up to 500 words and a concise CV by 1 March 2014. The authors of the accepted proposals will be notified by 15 March 2014. Manuscripts of up to 60.000 characters (including spaces, notes and maximal five figures) will be expected to be submitted by 15 August 2014. This issue is to be published in December 2014.

The submitted contributions are assessed by reviewers appointed by the IMIS Academic Advisory Board and the IMIS Board of Directors.

13-17 April 2014 at Palermo (Italy).

We invite you to submit papers to the panel 

Architectures of Exile: 
Visions and re-Visions of the global modern in the age of the refugee”,

chaired by Regina Göckede (BTU Cottbus) and Rachel Lee (TU Berlin),

and outlined as follows:

The emergence of what is today known as international architecture is to a large extent related to the global impact of exiled European architects, who, scattered throughout the world, contributed decisively to its theoretical debates, institutional formations and built manifestations from the early 1920s onwards.

The historiography of exiled modern architecture has long focused on cases of purportedly successful and unidirectional cultural transfer as represented in the master narratives of prominent US immigrants such as Walter Gropius and Mies van der Rohe. The dominant focus on individual biographies and histories of linear stylistic innovations has all too often overlooked the importance of discrepant discursive contexts (material and non-material alike), marginal geographical destinations, the effects of critical self-reflection, as well as the numerous tragedies of loss, disruption and failure under the conditions of forced dislocation. In the last two decades, there have been, however, several important studies that have contributed to a much more complex understanding and significantly extended knowledge (temporal as well as geographical) of the fragmented dynamics of architects’ and urban planners¹ exilic dislocations (including re-migrations and transmigrations) and modern architecture and planning. In addition, new approaches from the fields of post-colonial and cultural studies have stimulated the emergence of conceptually de-centered and ideologically de-nationalized perspectives.

This session focuses on the intersection of exile and architectural practice as a historical phenomenon in an increasingly globalizing world. It seeks to re-examine both the exilic histories of our architectural present and the concept of exile as an analytical tool for interpretively grasping the so-called globalization of modern architecture.

We invite contributions by historians of architecture and art history as well as by scholars from related fields such as literary studies, anthropology, human geography and political history. Papers can address the many individual lives and works of 19th and 20th century exiled European architects with a view to their role in the transformation of international architecture, trace (discursive) modes of production and reception (including non-European resistance to Western cultural hegemony), test specific (historical) experiences for links with and relevance to current, or possibly earlier, exilic modes of planning and building, or investigate the research field¹s historiographical overlaps and collusions with related interpretive paradigms like diasporic, (trans-)migrant, (post-)colonial, transnational, cosmopolitan, global, or international architecture.

We are particularly interested in comparative perspectives and theoretical-methodological approaches that consider temporal/geographical variants, discrepant political-ideological conditions, and institutional and personal networks. We also invite papers that explore exilic careers of non-European architects within Europe or analyse the architecture produced, commissioned or inhabited by exiles who were not architects.


The deadline for proposing a paper (300-word abstract) is 1 December 2013.
Submissions to the chairs of the sessions (Regina Göckede and Rachel should be accompanied by a short biographical note (max. 150 words). Acceptance decisions will be communicated by mid-December. Please note that invited speakers are expected to submit their complete paper by 15 March, 2014, to be circulated among the conference¹s participants. Speakers based in countries participating in the Action (refer to the for the complete list) will be able to claim reimbursement of their expenses. A few grants will be available for speakers based in other countries.
