In this sub project that focuses on both individual narratives and public media representations, the objectives are (1) to analyse the multiple representations and narratives of mobility and belonging, and (2) to scrutinize the reception on certain cultural texts, be they literary of film fiction, documentaries, or news media texts. The aim is to shed light on the processes of multi-sited and multiple belonging and the experiences of exclusion in their social context. Another aim is to co-produce alternative representations to the presumably restrictive representations as collaboration between research participants and the researchers. The existing narratives (autobiographical narratives; films; fiction; digital materials) are critically analysed together with the migrants that have volunteered to participate at the multicultural centre and the volunteers at the museum, and new narratives and visual and other products are created by encouraging research participants to produce their own versions of representations of belonging. In the focus of this 4-year-long workshop are the embodied, affective, and multi-sensory experiences and narratives of belonging. The reparative endeavor of this sub project calls for co-creating alternative representations of migration and belonging in the workshop. The epistemological interest of this team is to cross the borders of personal and social.
