  Add to Calendar 2017-12-14 9:15 2017-12-15 12:30 Europe/Paris EU Border Care & Transitory Lives Collaborative Workshop: (Un)Making Lives at the Border: Precarity, Mobility and Permanence in the Mediterranean Migration Encounter

This workshop brings together researchers from two different funded research projects on migration in European borderlands. Building on existing scholarship and new findings, we wish to initiate an interdisciplinary dialogue between scholars in the field of anthropology, sociology, and border and migration studies on relatively understudied themes and to highlight the narrative and material continuities between the social, moral and legal dimensions of forced displacement. Focusing on the Mediterranean, the work presented negotiates, in diverse ways, three key concepts – mobility, precarity, and permanence – that best unlock the intricacies of the mobility nexus along these highly mediatised international migration routes.
