CONF: Migration Across the Disciplines - 30th June - 1st July 2011

A two-day interdisciplinary conference on migration organized by Tendayi Bloom and Parvati Nair, Centre for the Study of Migration, Lock Keeper's Cottage, Queen Mary, University of London, Mile End Road, London E1 4NS

30th June - 1st July 2011 (10.30 am onwards on both days)

Few will dispute that the study of migration involves numerous possible disciplinary routes and methodologies of research. With this conference, the Centre for the Study of Migration brings together scholars, practitioners and performers from several continents. They work in the fields of: anthropology, geography, governance, languages, law, literature, media, medicine, philosophy, physics, and politics. They will be expressing themselves through traditional academic papers, through poetry, through music, through film, through photography, and through insights from their daily practice. Based physically at the heart of Britain's migration story, we will have the option of a walking tour of London's East End and a conference dinner at a local Lebanese restaurant. We hope that you will join us and help us to explore Migration Across the Disciplines.

TO RESERVE* YOUR PLACE AT THIS YEAR?S CONFERENCE, PLEASE EMAIL: (and please specify whether you hope to come on Thursday?s walk, as there are limited places on the walk)

  • There is no registration fee, but attendees will be expected to supply their own lunch (there are numerous reasonably priced cafes in and around the campus) and pay for the conference dinner, should they wish to join.
