Migration and Mobility Working Group

Migration and mobility are quintessential aspects of the human condition. This working group seeks to bring together historians who are investigating the movements of people, objects and ideas across the globe. Our goal is to unearth the diverse range of reasons which have motivated humans to travel over any given geographical distance throughout history. We also strive to untangle the complex networks of exchange which were formed by mobility and can be found in all aspects of human culture: be it in trade, art, literature, music – or even in our daily food. Inviting resident researchers and visiting scholars alike, the working group serves as an open platform where anyone can freely share novel approaches, individual projects or thought-provoking ideas related to spatial movement in any shape or form.
