It will take place on June 21-22 in cooperation with key partners of the HCTS: Ca' Foscari University Venice, Hebrew University, Kyoto University, and Yale University.

Human mobility has long been an important feature within and across cultures. This conference will look at this age-old phenomenon reflecting worldwide contemporary public and academic debates with an emphasis on the dynamics created by transcultural connections not only within the regions of Asia, Europe and the Americas but especially between those regions in past and present. Applications are especially encourages that deal with the crossings of national borders and explore urban migration as well as deal with processes of inclusion and exclusion, integration and segregation, globalization and nationalism, state and society, and wealth and poverty.

One of the aims of this international conference is to encourage the broader participation of younger scholars such as postdoctoral researchers, doctoral students and advanced masters students from various disciplines studying multiple forms of human mobility.
