Identities in Motion: An Interdisciplinary Symposium on Mobilities and Crossings

Symposium organized by the University of Cambridge Nationalisms and Identities Research Group (UnCaNI).

This one-day symposium provides an interdisciplinary forum for postgraduate students and early career scholars working on the role of mobilities and crossings in the (de)construction of identities. As a result of globalisation, mobile figures such as migrants and refugees have become increasingly salient in contemporary political discourse. At the same time, practices such as nation-state wall-building and the recent implementation of national lockdowns have highlighted the persistence of important limits to human mobility. The purpose of this symposium is to foster interdisciplinary exchanges that are both relevant to contemporary society and that transcend the current historical moment to address the relationship of mobility and identity in the past, present, and future.
