University Mohammed V - Agdal- Rabat, Morocco

This international conference on "Migration, Human Rights and the Politics of Identity in a Globalized World" will engage with the ways migrancy is re-shaping the world not simply in movement but, through movement, in relations. It will take up central components of migration and globalization such as labor, cultural membership, race, human rights, deterritorialization, transnationationl communities and the implications of migration and globalization on traditional referents such as the nation-state and citizenship. The overall objective is to engage critically with globalization, migration policy and the current dynamics affecting peoples, cultures and politics across nations and boundaries.

COLLOQUE INTERNATIONAL
Interculturalités!? Etat des lieux, malentendus, perspectives, théories et pratiques

L'interculturalité, sous des appellations diverses, est très souvent évoquée aussi bien dans les contextes de recherche que dans les projets pédagogiques ou les démarches institutionnelles. Les points d'exclamation et d'interrogation dont nous faisons suivre cette notion dans cet appel à propositions auront pour fonction de souligner que nous la manipulons comme un flacon de nitroglycérine extrêmement instable. En effet, cette notion pour le moins problématique se caractérise surtout par une absence de définition stable car en constante évolution et sujette à controverses.

Please circulate widely.

************************

The Militarization and Gender Research Cluster and the Queer, Feminist, Trans Studies Research Cluster of UC Davis are pleased to announce a joint conference, "Queer (In)Security," to be held May 4-5, 2012 at the University of California, Davis.

The conference topic emerges from campus-wide discussions about the role of a militarized police force on the UC campuses, highlighted by violent responses to the Occupy movement. At the same time, the neoliberal university, precipitated by budget cuts and calls for privatization, has destabilized institutional forms of resistance like queer studies, women's studies, and ethnic studies.
