BeschreibungShifting German Landscapes: East-West Perspectives on Cultural Hybridity and Place
Thursday 8 - Friday 9 November 2012
Venue: Institute of Germanic & Romance Studies, University of London, Senate House, London WC1

Even though mass migration and social transformations throughout Europe since 1989 have destabilized binaries such as East and West, Orient and Occident, or centre and margin, debates about identity and belonging have continued to construct notions of sameness and difference along geographical, cultural and mental maps that reinscribe such binaries. In Germany as elsewhere in Europe, multiculturalism has sparked heated and politically charged debates over the past decades. Taking migrants from the East who now live and work in Germany and, conversely, people of German descent who have moved to the East as a focus of investigation, this conference seeks to explore hybrid identities in the context of shifting geographies in Europe since 1989 from an interdisciplinary perspective.
Abstracts of 250-300 words should be be sent by 31 January 2012 to Renate Rechtien ( for proposals on aspects relating to culture, literature and film, and to David Galbreath ( for proposals relating to political studies, sociology and international relations.
Keynote speakers: Deniz Göktürk (Berkeley, CA); Tove H.Molloy (European Centre for Minority Issues, Flensburg)
