Migration, Humanities, and the Crisis of the Contemporary

NeMLA 2021 Seminar Panel
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, September 30, 2020

This collaborative, seminar-style panel invites an exploration of aesthetic interventions that respond to urgent concerns of contemporary migration. By analyzing the ways in which literature and the visual, performing, and conceptual arts engage with these issues, the panel interrogates how the humanities respond to the lexical and affective demands posed by the contemporary moment. How have our vocabularies as humanists been altered by discourses around migratory movements? In what ways can humanistic thought reframe ideas of rights, citizenship, sovereignty, and borders in light of present-day crises?
