Future Plans

2) Further cooperation with NW07 is planned. The joint special call 'Shifting Identities in Transnational Spaces. Migrants and Minorities narratives throughout time' has been prepared for ECER2021. If travel opportunities improve, we would like to apply to EERA funds to organize a workshop under this call in 2021 (Autumn) or 2022 (Spring).
