“Cultural Migration: Displacement and Renewal”
A Conference of the New York Folklore Society
September 9, 2017
The Castellani Art Museum of Niagara University

Migration across national borders reflects the conditions of an ever-changing world. The impacts of migration include the communication and sharing of cultural knowledge across geography and across ethnic and community boundaries. Migration also engenders accommodation, both from the hosting communities and the new arrivals. This shifting landscape may spark both positive and negative emotions, as hosting communities and migrants experience tensions arising from cultural intersections and differences.

The New York Folklore Society views this annual conference as an opportunity to encourage graduate students and scholars in the early stages of their careers. Proposals for papers and panel presentations are being specifically solicited from emerging scholars, as well as from those working in the public sector. We also encourage presentation proposals from practitioners working in the areas of public health, education, and community activism, as well as artists representing newcomer communities. Individuals and groups are encouraged to apply.

Proposals are due December 15, 2016

Notification of Acceptance: January 15, 2016
