CFP Paper Session IUAES 2013 - Mobile Sentiments: Transformations of Affect amid Transnational Migration

CFP: Paper Session
IUAES 2013 (August 5-10, Manchester, UK)
Mobile Sentiments: Transformations of Affect amid Transnational Migration
Session Organizers:
Nicola Mooney (University of the Fraser Valley)
Glynis George (University of Windsor)
Many emotions connect humans to places, whether homes, landscapes, or
nations, and these are unsettled and transformed with transnational
migration. This panel proposes to explore the dimensions of 'mobile
sentiments' - what we see as the affective and emotional responses of
people to the places and experiences of migration - in several
ethnographic contexts. How are mobile sentiments constituted, transmitted
and circulated within migrant communities? How and why do people express
links to home and place in migrant contexts, and how do these differ from
those 'at home'? Through what processes do host nations become home
nations? How are emplacing sentiments in migration shaped by those at
home, as well as by the circumstances of movement? How do notions of time
and history, as well as place and space, influence the affects of
migration? What are the roles of memory, nostalgia, and the imaginary in
the construction of migrant attachments to place, landscape, nation, etc?
What are the affective dimensions of governing mobile subjects through
settlement, citizenship, multiculturalism, and other policy frameworks?
