In creating a body within Migration and Society whose name comprises a noun (encounters) and
an adjective (creative), it has been our aim not solely to place both of these constituents face to
face. Rather, or in addition, we hope to situate the former in its never-complete state as a mode
of infinite precincts and openness whereby dialogues between disciplines and subdisciplines are
negotiated, reconfigured, and established whenever these creative encounters take place. In this
sense, Creative Encounters is an invitation for the poetic, the narrative, and the visual to share
the same space and cohabitate—certainly not as the same and/or according to predetermined
conditions, but more precisely with an equal potential to assert their presence (their integral
presence)—while maintaining a co-presence with other genres, fields, and subfields.
