This symposium will examine how culture moves and circulates: across space, time, material conditions, technologies and affects. We will consider how movement shapes and reshapes the cultural domain, creating new relationships among people, objects and practices; or, conversely, what happens with the meaning of objects, paradigms, practices, when they are anchored and moored. We will bring together cultural scholars working in different contexts to examine the conditions that determine the inertial and accelerative aspects of cultural movement.
Topics covered will include the circulation of material goods, concepts and bodies; object itineraries; travel, mobilization; migration, multilingualism, and language use; place and placelessness; technologies of mobility; affects in motion; heritage; knowledge production; layered identities
