Transnationalism, Identities' Dynamics and Cultural Diversification in Urban Post-migratory Situations

January 9, 2014

The TRICUD Final International Conference will take place at the University of Liege between 14-16 May 2014.

The conference aims at presenting the main findings of the multidisciplinary research programme TRICUD (2010-2014) on post-migratory cities and transnational flows, the dynamics of identities and the process of cultural diversification. TRICUD aims to better understand how migration transforms both sending societies in the South and receiving societies in the North.

The conference will also open the discussion on Transnational Families and Caregiving Practices (session 1), Trans-locality : Anchor, Mobilities and Belongings Recomposition (session 2), Cultural diversity and inter-ethnic relations in European societies (session 3) and Artistic Expression and Identity Construction in Multicultural Cities (session 4).

Keynote speakers:

  • Nina Glick-Schiller (University of Manchester)
  • Steve Vertovec (University of Oxford and Max Planck Institute)

The TRICUD Conference is organized by three research centres involved in the TRICUD programme and based at the Institute of Human and Social Sciences of the University of Liege: the CEDEM (Centre for Ethnic and Migration Studies) - coordinator, CLEO (Centre for the Study of Public Opinion) and POLE SUD (Pole Liegeois d’Etudes sur les Societes Urbaines en Developpement).
