Migration Antalya

Antalya Bilim Universitesi invited Gerhard Hofbauer to give the opening lecture at the "International World Migration Movements Symposium" in early March 2022. The title of the paper was "The Diverse Phenomena of today's Migration, Mirrored by the Education-Minded Concept of Polyaesthetics". Although ( perhaps especially because ) the aesthetic approach to the topic differed from the other mostly empirical contributions, many conversations and numerous positive feedbacks were the result. Some contacts could lead to further cooperation. From a polyaesthetic perspective, the topic opened up a broad field for reflecting on the motives and on the individual as well as social-communicative effects of migration and its tradition-integrating backgrounds. The contribution will be published in the symposium publication.
