    Leibniz-Institut für Geschichte und Kultur des östlichen Europa (GWZO), Leipzig, Germany

    This workshop will explore the emotional dimension of property transfers that accompanied expulsion and ethnic cleansing in Europe and other regions of the world in the mid-20th century. While much ink has been spilled over the fate of displaced people, the property that was left behind has attracted little attention. It is common knowledge that the property of displaced people – be it evacuees, refugees or expellees – was subject to confiscation, looting and destruction. Much less is known, however, about the emotional impact that losing and acquiring such belongings had on individuals and societies. This workshop will investigate how emotions triggered by mass property transfers shaped the reconstruction of the social order in the affected states among the displaced and dispossessed people, and among their successors.

    We welcome papers from scholars in a variety of disciplines, including history, anthropology, sociology, law, and cultural, literary and film studies.

    Deadline for submissions is 15 January 2018. Selected speakers will be contacted by 30 January 2018.

    The workshop will take place at the Leibniz-Institut für Geschichte und Kultur des östlichen Europa (GWZO), Lepzig, on 24 and 25 May 2018. Funds will be available towards travel and accommodation costs. Selected papers will be considered for publication in a special issue of a peer-review journal.
