Summary:
In cooperation with the Centre for the History and Culture of East Central Europe (at U Leipzig, Germany), the Centre for Area Studies (U Leipzig, Germany), the Leibniz Institute for Regional Geography (Leipzig, Germany), the Collaborative Research Centre (SFB) 1199: “Processes of Spatialization under the Global Condition” (U Leipzig, Germany) will hold its first colloquium series. The theme is “Spaces of Migration – Eastern Europe in Comparison” and will focus on how migration challenges spatial orders as well as creates new spatial formats. The colloquium will be held regularly on Wednesdays, from 5:15 to 6:45 pm, at the GWZO.

Abstract:
Migration challenges existing spatial orders and, at the same time, creates new spatial formats – some of them being stable and long-term, with others by contrast being weaker and lasting for a short time. Concurrently, when confronted with migration societies modify their existing practices for controlling space and look for new possibilities of establishing order. The current refugee situation requires a comparative and historical reflection/contextualization. The colloquium series brings together research on Central and Eastern Europe and other world regions in an effort to explain the reactions of governments and societies in Eastern Europe to the current refugee crisis.

Migration erschüttert bestehende Raumordnungen und schafft gleichzeitig neue Raumformate – manche von ihnen von langfristiger und stabiler Natur, andere dagegen nur von kürzerer Dauer. Zugleich passen Gesellschaften, wenn sie mit Migration konfrontiert sind, ihre bisherige Praxis der Kontrolle des Raumes an und suchen nach neuen Möglichkeiten der Ordnung. Das aktuelle Flüchtlingsgeschehen fordert die Frage nach einer vergleichenden historischen Einordnung heraus. Die Ringvorlesung bringt Forschungen zu Ostmitteleuropa mit den Erträgen der Untersuchung zu anderen Weltregionen zusammen und hilft damit, die Reaktionen von Regierungen und Gesellschaften im östlichen Europa auf die derzeitige Flüchtlingskrise zu erklären.
