Abstract:
The COVID-19 pandemic transformed our globally interconnected world almost overnight as cross-border immobility was enforced, striking at the heart of globalisation as we knew it. The coronavirus spread along international network ties and the response across the globe was travel bans, entry bans and border restrictions. The present study explores the impact of this disruption on the everyday transnationalism driven by international business, global work, career mobility and high skilled migration. The study focuses on the lived experience of transnational professionals in global corporations whose lives and work span geographical boundaries. 23 narrative interviews were conducted (virtually) from May 2020 onwards. The participants come from across Europe and beyond (Azerbaijan, Australia, Brazil, Canada, India, Indonesia, Mexico and the US) and live in Amsterdam, Berlin, Dubai, Geneva, Hamburg, Liechtenstein, London, Oslo, Perth, Vancouver and Singapore working for 20 different global corporations. The study explores how the pandemic has impacted the global work and transnational lives of these professionals and their sense of ‘home’ and belonging.

Abstract:
According to the romantic idea, artists are cosmopolitans — they are citizens of the world. This deep conviction seems to be shared by sociologists because only recently appeared specific literature dealing with a problem of cultural differences in art worlds. The seminar is devoted to the analysis of the international dimension of creative careers focusing on objective and subjective elements. I focus on the creative careers of violin virtuoso and my work is based on the ethnographic research conducted over 10 years in the young violin virtuoso world.
