CFP: The materialities of belonging: Objects in/of exile across the Mediterranean (Mobile Culture Studies, 2021; deadline 15 Apr 2021)

The call for the upcoming thematic issue 2021 of ›mcsj› (Mobile Cultural Studies Journal) is dedicated to following the trajectories of displaced things and persons, all by being open to the “surprise of movement” and to the “cultural connections between unexpected times and places”, as Stephen Greenblatt has called it.

The contributions which we ask for should focus on the Mediterranean region, which has always been the place of multiple exchanges of people, ideas, and objects. The proposed aspects are (1) research on objects, (2) research with objects, and (3) restitution by objects.
