Refugee Histories in the Global South
RSC Public Seminar Series, Hilary Term 2021
How does forced migration look different if we examine it through a historical perspective? How have refugees been historical actors, as well as victims? This series examines a range of topics that illuminate these questions, by examining the historical entanglements between migration, im/mobility, colonialism, race, and borders.
Convenor: Dr. Anne Irfan
