Cher-e-s collègues,

Veuillez trouver ci-dessous un appel à contribution pour un panel qui sera organisé à la prochaine conférence annuelle RGS-IBG qui se tiendra à Londres du 28-30 août 2019.




“Emerging notions in
the analysis of forced migration and borders: Ambiguity, improvisation and more”



Session convenors: Léa
Lemaire, Lorenzo Vianelli and Lucas Oesch (University of Luxembourg)



Emerging notions such
as ambiguity (e.g. Maestri 2017, Oesch 2017, Stel 2016), uncertainty (e.g. Biehl
2015), volatility (e.g. Fisher 2018), discretion (e.g. Darling 2016, Gill et al
2017), in/visibilisation (e.g. Fiddian-Qasmiyeh 2016), inconsistency (e.g. Gill
et al 2015), improvisation, and more, are increasingly used to analyse the
governance of the im/mobility of refugees, as well as the issue of borders. These
notions are used in geography and other disciplines to study topics such as camps,
walls, deportation, resettlement, refugee status determination, asylum seekers’
reception, irregular migration, and so on. This is true for both studies in the
Global South and North.
These notions fall within an
attempt to explain and conceptualise the complexity of forced migration and
borders, and the way they are governed. Indeed, they highlight contradictory
dynamics and paradoxical processes.
However,
there has been hitherto little attempt to think across these notions and to
reflect on them as analytical and conceptual tools in the study of forced migration
and borders. This panel aims at bringing together contributions referring to
these emerging notions in order to explore their commonalities and diversity. Among
a multiplicity of approaches that has been used to grasp these notions, there has
been a wide reference to the Foucauldian perspective by conceiving them as
strategies or effects of dispositifs of government. However, this panel is not limited
to this perspective, and aims at reflecting on the various conceptual
approaches used in the production of these emerging notions. It also seeks to
understand the effects of such strategies or effects of government, both on
governmental practices themselves and on the subjectivities of refugees.



The session therefore
welcomes theoretical, empirical, and/or methodological contributions on issues
including, but not limited to, the following:



-Critical assessment
of notions such as ambiguity, uncertainty, volatility, discretion,
in/visibilisation, inconsistency, improvisation, and more, in the analysis of
forced migration and borders;



- Empirical analyses in
which these notions either are used as analytical tools or emerged from
fieldwork;



- Attempts to
conceptualise these emerging notions, in the field of forced migration and borders;



- Reflections on the
relation that these emerging notions have with established concepts in the
literature on forced migration and borders, such as dispositif, assemblage,
governmentality, etc.;



-Research using these
notions and bridging the global South and North;



- Methodological
issues in investigating ambiguity, uncertainty, volatility, discretion,
in/visibilisation, inconsistency, improvisation, and more;

no more than 200 words, affiliations and emails of each author, should be sent
