Island Ethnography: Reflecting “Islandness” in the Anthropocene

In recent years, islands have experienced a hype in various research areas: flight and migration, tourism, ecology, heritage making, island cities and urban archipelagos, etc. This panel seeks to link research interests about islands and to exchange experiences and reflections, especially related to the real geography of islands, as well as to develop conceptual frameworks that can be used to build common approaches for research on and about islands.

Island Ethnography: Reflecting “Islandness” in the Anthropocene

organised by Francesco Bachis, Greca N. Meloni and Sarah Nimführ

In recent years, islands have experienced a hype in various research areas: flight and migration, tourism, ecology – with special reference to climate change, interspecies, and «friction» in the Anthropoceneheritage making, island cities and urban archipelagos, etc. Furthermore, there is an increased scientific interest on various forms of solidarities within islands and beyond them.

This panel seeks to link research interests about islands and to exchange experiences and reflections, especially related to the real geography of islands, as well as to develop conceptual frameworks that can be used to build common approaches for research on and about islands.

We invite scientists, who work on islands or are doing research about islands, to give insights on their island research. These can deal with the special features, challenges and opportunities of the island both content analytical and method-theoretical.

If you are interested, please submit a short paper’s abstract (up to 300 characters with spaces) and a long paper’s abstract (up to 250 words) via the online form of IUAES 2019 (https://www.iuaes2019.org/paper-guidelines/) by 15 February, 2019. The panel conveners will decide about accepted abstracts by 15 March 2019.
