This three-day public event will bring together academics, artists, and activists to ‘explore alternative ways of thinking and knowing about migration – of people, things, and ideas – rooted in the urgency of contemporary experience,’ as we have been examining in Refugee Hosts here, here and particularly in our Representations of Displacement series , our Translation and Displacement Series, and in our Creative Archive.
The event aims to ‘acknowledge the many meanings of ‘migration’ and ‘knowledge’, to probe the history of their interrelation, and to use our imaginative engagement with crossings of knowledge in its many forms.’
As part of the event, Yousif M. Qasmiyeh will offering readings of his poetry, drawing, amongst others, on the poems he has been writing as part of the Refugee Hosts project (see here).
The event is free to attend and will take place at:
Kettle’s Yard, Cambridge – Sunday 15 September
Fitzwilliam College, Cambridge – Monday 16 and Tuesday 17 September
