ETHNOGRAPHIES OF MULTI-LOCAL LIVING - Call for Papers, Traditiones 52, 2023

2022-12-15

For this thematic issue, we invite papers addressing the theme of multi-locality and multi-local living as an everyday practice.  Multi-local living refers to varied patterns of mobility and residence whose common denominator is living habitually in more than one place during the course of a year (Duchêne-Lacroix 2014).  While it overlaps to some degree with terms such as migration, mobility, translocality, and simultaneity, multi-locality strives to address existing patterns and rhythms of both dwelling in and moving among multiple places of residence.  Multi-locality appears in ethnological and anthropological literature as early as the 1970s (Ember & Ember 1972). However, only recently has the term been employed more systematically to refer to both its traditional (alpine transhumance) and contemporary manifestations (second home ownership, cross-border/transnational migration) – an example of which the case is Ethnologia Europaea's thematic issue in 2007 (Bendix & Lofgren 2007, Rolshoven 2007).
