International Symposium – Displaying the Social History of Migrants: Content, Scenography, Public Engagement
February 15, 2022 at 8:00 am – 5:00 pm Paris, France
The France-based Organization for a Museum of Working-Class Housing (Association pour un Musée du Logement populaire, or AMuLoP) and the “Centre d’histoire sociale des mondes contemporains” (University of Paris 1/CNRS) will host an in-person and online international symposium around museum design as it pertains to the social history of migration. The symposium will be held at the Campus Condorcet of Paris-Aubervilliers (Centre des colloques), near the “Front populaire” metro stop.
The four round tables will feature both academics and practitioners with a museum and heritage background, and will be capped by a keynote address by Prof. Pap Ndiaye, historian and director of the French National Museum of Immigration History in Paris. This event is part of the research project “Migrants in Ordinary Housing” funded by the French Institut Convergences Migrations. The symposium is directly connected with the temporary exhibit “La vie HLM” (Public Housing Life) held at the Cité Émile-Dubois, Aubervilliers, France, from October 16, 2021 to June 30, 2022.
