Colloque International Practices, Materiality, Places and Temporality New Approaches in Albanian Studies

Colloque International Practices, Materiality, Places and Temporality New Approaches in Albanian Studies

National Historical Museum, Tirana

Practices, Materiality, Places and Temporality New Approaches in Albanian Studies

The last international conference on Albanian studies was held in London in 1999 and resulted in the celebrated volume Albanian Identities. Myth and History (2002). Nearly 20 years after this milestone, the time has come for a new meeting, which can be seen as an opportunity to assess the changes that have occurred in Albanian studies and to discuss results, changes of paradigms, emerging approaches and perspectives for the future. Notably, issues related to the study of practices, materiality, places and temporality, which have been and are still debated in contemporary social sciences, deserve to be discussed in relation to the Albanian context.

Around 50 scholars of various disciplines are invited to discuss these topics during a three-day conference hosted by the National Historical Museum in Tirana. The objective is to reflect collectively on current and emerging approaches in Albanian studies in order to identify future directions of research and to envisage potential collaborative projects.

This conference is the result of long-term collaboration between the Department of History of the University of Tirana, the Institute of Cultural Anthropology and Art Studies (IAKSA, Tirana), the Institute of Mediterranean, European and Comparative Ethnology (IDEMEC, Aix-en-Provence) and the Centre for Turkish, Ottoman, Balkans and Central-Asia Studies (CETOBAC, Paris).
