WAIT - Waiting for an uncertain future: the temporalities of irregular migration
The WAIT project has focused on the temporal aspects of migration and investigated how temporal structures related to irregular migration are shaped by legal regimes, cultural norms and power relationships, and how they shape subjective experiences and life projects. The project adds a temporal perspective to dominant spatial approaches in migration studies, and advances theories of temporality in the humanities and social sciences. Waiting has been scrutinized ethnographically in four European migration-hubs: Oslo, Stockholm, Marseille, and Hamburg, and analytically through targeted theoretical tasks. Waiting as an analytical perspective offers new insights into the complex and shifting nature of processes of bordering, belonging, state power, exclusion and inclusion, and social relations in irregular migration. The conference will be held on the platform Zoom, and it's now possible to register your participation.
At the closing conference, core researchers and network partners present their research. Speakers include: Bridget Anderson, Nicholas De Genova, Kari Anne Klovholt Drangsland, Thomas Hylland Eriksen, Randi Gressgård, Christine Jacobsen, Helge Jordheim, Marry-Anne Karlsen, Shahram Khosravi, Odin Lysaker, Sandrine Musso, Gregor Noll, Jessica Schultz, Jo Vearey, Sarah Willen, Katerina Rozakou, Johannes Machinya and Frode Eick.
