October, from 16th to 20th 2017

Argument

The International Colloquium: “Intercultural Communication and Transnational Migration: Borders, Policies and Citizenship” will be held from October 16th to 20th 2017, at Praia Vermelha campus from UFRJ, in joint partnership with the IX Migration Forum / MIGRATIC 2017, it is the result of a collaborative and networking initiative organized by researchers from Brazil, France, Canada, Argentina, Spain, the United States, Uruguay, Chile, Ecuador and Martinique.

The event’s goal is to put together researchers and experts from various countries to discuss the issue of migration in conjunction with the field of social communication, cultural theories, border studies and within the framework of notions such as politics, democracy and citizenship.

Besides proposing to examine the trajectory of migratory studies in the world and to discuss specific experiences developed in different countries, the event aims to elaborate a joint reflection – based on different scenarios and perspectives – on the meanings of interculturality in the transnational migratory context (both in their social and subjective nature and in their technological configuration) for the empowerment of migrant populations, the necessity to build symbolic bridges, instead physical and mental walls, and the urgency to reintegrate, in the theory of human migrations, the principles of democracy and social, political, intercultural and global citizenship.
