OU talks on migration

OU researchers will run three talks on migration at the Migration Museum in London in June and July.

The first one, Observing Displacement? Interrogating the Role of Art in the Politics of Displacement, will take place on Wednesday 21 June and is part of Refugee Week.

It brings together academics and practitioners to engage with how the arts, politics and law represents the experiences of refugees and migrants.

What is the role of art and artists, particularly those using participatory practice, in the politics of displacement? What questions does such work raise? What possibilities does it open up? Focussing on artist Eva Sajovic’s work with displaced people in Jordan and Italy, the talk will engage with some of these perennial questions.

OU researcher, Dr Agnes Czajka, Lecturer in Politics and International Studies is one of the speakers at this event.

Other talks in the series are:
