Human Mobility and Cultural History

In September 2011 we learnt that our application to the AHRC for funding for a new research project looking at history and migration ('Human Mobility and Cultural History: The Italian Case as Explanatory Model') had been successful, allowing us to organize two international workshops in June 2012 and May 2013. Ten of the most respected experts in the field will be invited to discuss the theoretical and methodological basis of a history of the cultural impact of migration in Italy, from the Classical period until today. This will lead to a major funding application for the organization of a publication and other related events.

The first workshop took place at Pembroke College, Oxford on the 2nd June 2012. The three project co-ordinators (Professor Guido Bonsaver, Dr Elena Isayev and Dr Guido Tintori) presented a position paper for discussion with our international partners. The paper was then turned into a fully fledged concept paper which is going to be presented and discussed at the second workshop.


WORKSHOP 2: 27 MAY 2013
The second workshop of the AHRC-funded project will take place at Pembroke College, Oxford on Monday 27 May.
The entire discussion will be based around the theory and methodology of the research project aiming to study mobility and cultural change in Italy, from pre-Imperial Rome until today. 
Invited discussants are Prof. M. Ambrosini (Milan) Prof. A. Arru (Naples);  Prof. R. Bosworth (Oxford); Dr E. Canepari (Oxford); Prof. D. Gabaccia (Minnesota); Dr. F. Goglia (Exeter); Prof. E. Pugliese (Rome); Prof. U. Israel (Dresden); Prof. E. Scarpellini (Milan); Prof. Evelyn Welch (KCL).
