Digital Workshop (World Café), 18 February 2022 Call for Participation

"What is new in the Archaeology of Mobilities? Current issues, latest trends"

This digital workshop "What is new in the Archaeology of Mobilities? Current issues, latest trends” will take place on 18 February 2022. In order to generate a creative working atmosphere, we want to conduct the workshop using the World Cafémethod. Group discussions and breakout sessions are planned. We will introduce each session with a specific query that relates to the overall workshop question. During the event, participants will discuss these questions within their group before moving on to the next table/group. At the end of the process, a plenary session will summarize the key ideas and discuss follow-up options.

The workshop will take place via Zoom. We encourage scholars from all academic levels to participate. Please register by sending a short statement of motivation (max. 200 words) by 15 January 2022 to: agkulturbewegung@agtida.de

Abstract: Mobility’, ‘movement’ and ‘motion’ have developed into major fields of research in the social sciences and humanities over the last years, implied by the ‘new mobilities paradigm’ and the ‘mobility turn’, which strongly resonated in archaeology. In this workshop, we will introduce and discuss some of the latest theoretical and methodological trends in archaeological research on mobilities, clustered around our six thematic tables: migration and material culture, mobilities and gender, religious travels and sacred geographies, mobilities and resources, mobilities and asymmetrical dependencies and post-mobility. Our aim is to bring together scholars from different archaeological disciplines and indeed beyond, to gain a broad range of perspectives and case studies on these themes, potentially as a basis for future collaborations. Together, we want to explore different questions about mobilities in archaeology, and exchange ideas about our various approaches, methods and goals. In the process, we want to give each other new impulses and ideas for our research.
