The first Migration, Translation, and Identities Network (MITN) 3-day workshop, Representations of Identities in Contemporary Societies was held in Forli, Italy (12-14th of July).
The workshop brought together MITN members from Warwick, Bologna and Monash Universities, as well as PhD students and scholars from other universities who had the chance to attend talks and take part in workshops led by renowned scholars from Italy, the UK, Australia and the US.
Talks focused on the themes of identity, migration and translation in contemporary society, while workshops for PhD students and early career researchers focussed on how to get published and how to find their career path.
Along with MITN's history and research clusters and activity, there was discussion about the future of the network to promote its sustainable development. Among future perspectives, the possibility of publishing a volume with papers by MITN members emerged as significant.
The next MITN event is scheduled for late September, more details will be provided nearer the time.
MITN acts as a hub for researchers, teachers, students, and practitioners interested in any or all of our overlapping thematic areas of: Global Objects of Trade and Travel; Translating Pain; Literary Habitats; and Migration and Work.
