The Cultures in Transit Conferences alternate between Liverpool Hope University and Jean Moulin University, Lyon. This year’s conference will give a particular emphasis to the idea of New Frontiers, in three ways:
1. in terms of new themes and areas of migration;
2. in terms of new barriers to migration and multi-culturalism;
3. issues concerning new cultural spaces that sit ‘in-between’ perceived normative groups and values.
Cultures in Transit Conferences examine how cultures change over time and in space. They are concerned with:
* What happens to cultural practices (textual, visual, linguistic, musical) when they are displaced?
* What happens to local cultures when external cultural practices confront them?
Historical processes of hybrization/metissage, intertextuality and cultural fusion brought about by migrations of people, ideas and practices form a central interest of the programme, as does the impact of globalization on the production, consumption, diffusion and reception of cultures and cultural practices.
