11:15 a.m. Arrival as a Starting Point: Arrival Infrastructures as ‘Minor’ Integrations Luce Beeckmans

Luce Beeckmans (ReROOT Co-Investigator) is a research professor at the Department of Architecture, Faculty of Engineering, KU Leuven. Her research focuses on the intersection of migration, city, and architecture, while also connecting it to broader discussions about urban diversity and inclusion. Based on her experiences in the ReROOT research project, Luce Beeckmans directs her presentation “Arrival as a Starting Point: Arrival Infrastructures as ‘Minor’ Integrations” toward understanding how society engages with migration. In this context, arrival serves as both the starting point and departure point for ‘minor’ integrations. Additionally, the concept of “doing” migration is framed as a process of “infrastructuring.” She also addresses the methodological challenges associated with investigating arrival infrastructures.
