IAS Workshop - Mobilising Hospitality

Date: 26-27 September 2005 Time: as shown

This workshop aims to bring together researchers from several disciplines to think about hospitality as a concept for theorising social relations in an increasingly mobile world. Whether engaged as a cultural, ethical, commercial or technological concept, scholars are using the notion of hospitality to think about such relations, from the politics of multiculturalism, migration and welcoming the stranger to the relationship between hosts and guests in tourism mobilities to cybernetic encounters with the other through virtual mobilities.

Some of the themes we hope to explore are:

  • hospitality as an ethics for a mobile world - cosmopolitan hospitality
  • multiculturalism and postcolonial hospitality
  • tourism hospitality
  • hospitality in cyberspace/hosting and - economies of hospitality information technologies - spaces and landscapes
  • hospitality, hostility and the inhospitable hospitality
  • intellectual hospitality within and across disciplines>
