MWP Multidisciplinary Research Workshop - Migration in Historical and Contemporary Perspectives

Dates:
  • Wed 03 Jun 2020 09.50 - 16.10
  Add to Calendar 2020-06-03 9:50 2020-06-03 16:10 Europe/Paris MWP Multidisciplinary Research Workshop - Migration in Historical and Contemporary Perspectives

This one-day multidisciplinary workshop brings together contributions linked broadly to the topic of migration. Since 2015, narratives and imagery of people fleeing conflict in the Middle East and Africa and taking to boats to cross the Mediterranean or Aegean in order to find refuge in Europe have become recurrent news. In North America, the US-Mexico border has become a space of exclusion through the migrants’ forced encampment. Furthermore, various international humanitarian organizations have signaled the urgency in addressing forced displacement. However, the incidence of migration is nothing new, as waves and related crises of displacement have been recurrent historical events in times of violence, natural disasters or economic insufficiency. Indeed, contemporary forms of migration and the debates that arise from them are often underscored by historical processes related to race, gender, labor, class, and/or the state. This workshop brings together researchers and academics from across the European University Institute and beyond, working from different disciplinary angles on topics concerning local, national and international governance of migration, the socio-economic integration of migrants, and public opinion about immigration.

Organisers: Doina Anca Cretu (MW Fellow, HEC) and Alina Vranceanu (EUI MPC)

The Zoom link will be provided only to registered participants.
