constructs a transnational architecture for conversations and collaborative research projects between artists, writers, and researchers across multiple global sites. Migratory Times is an online archive and journal that documents and builds on a year long project (2016-2017) by the Institute of (im)Possible Subjects. The project engages artists and researchers in projects and events that emphasize the times and spaces of human migration in and from a Global South perspective. The Migratory Times online space documents these projects while also building on them, inviting new works by artists, writers and researchers. The online sessions last for three months, with the inaugural session commencing on March 8, 2019. The sessions are punctuated by events, including online conversations with artists and authors, and invited commentary on published essays.

Session #1: Translating Geographies of Displacement
Dislocating Geographies, an online salon
Dislocating Geographies was an online discussion held as part of the Migratory Times series of online “Salons” – transnational discussions on issues related to gender, race, migration, and geopolitics.
“Dislocating Geographies” Migratory Times Salon Series
Sun, Jan 29, 2017 10 AM PST / 11:00 AM MST / 1 PM EST/COT / 7 PM ECT/ January 30 1 AM ICT/ January 30 2 AM PHT / January 30 3 AM KST/
An online discussion
Questions we will navigate during this first salon include: What are displacements and gentrification? How do they manifest in our different localities? How do displacements and gentrification shape local and transnational lives? What are the conditions creating such phenomenon? What sort of dislocations are created through processes of gentrification and global capitalism? How do the events we organized in December address these questions? How might we move forward with these discussions together?
Purpose of the monthly Salons
The salon series is part of our platform, “Migratory Times,” designed to create spaces for thinking together, creating actions, and materializing new content for exhibitions and publications that focus on themes related to migration, gender, and the times and spaces of displacements. The Institute of (im)Possible Subjects is a transnational feminist network that seeks to build transdisciplinary learning communities of artists, researchers, designers, filmmakers, writers, activists, people, and collectives.

This event is in partnership with at land’s edge:
at land’s edge is an autonomous pedagogical platform based in East and South Los Angeles that nurtures the voices of cultural producers who are committed to social transformation. We understand pedagogy as not only a method of education, but as a critical space where the processes of teaching and learning, knowledge and action, and self and community are reflexive, interwoven, and oriented toward the liberatory possibilities of a just and democratic world.
