Nov 27 saw what we hope will become an annual Winter Celebration event for us. Held in the Michaelhouse we were joined by a talented series of performers and enjoyed a concert with diverse acts. We enjoyed piano pieces, a spoken recital, an intriguing piece of sound art produced by the audience, an ensemble and finally a piece performed on the Oud.

CALLS

 

Due Feb 17 2020

 

 

Forced Migration Review Issue 64 – to be published in June 2020 – will include a feature on Trafficking and smuggling.

An FMR issue was published in 2006 looking at the impact of trafficking on individuals and communities worldwide. Since then increased reporting of trafficking has triggered renewed attention around the growing impact of both trafficking and smuggling of people, and the links between these related – but distinct – phenomena. This new issue of FMR will explore developments in this field.

They are looking for concise, pertinent, practice-oriented, challenging articles that present analysis, lessons and good practice with wide relevance. In particular, the FMR Editors are looking for submissions that reflect a diverse range of experience and opinions.

Full call for articles online at www.fmreview.org/trafficking-smuggling

Memories in Transit

This interdisciplinary conference brings together scholars from various disciplines researching transnational dimensions of memory, subjectivity and identity formation, broadly defined. Exploring the social-political processes and identities that resist or transcend neat categorisations of the ‘local’, ‘national’ or ‘global’, this conference explores different modes of transnational memory and commemoration that shape identities such as race, ethnicity, nationality, religion, gender, and sexuality. The conference seeks to refine conceptual and methodological issues surrounding transnational memories, forms of remembering, and identities through a discussion of contemporary and historical case studies from across the globe as well as theoretically focused contributions to the field. The conference will be relevant to sociologists, historians, literary critics, political scientists, and human geographers interested in the relationships between memory and mobility.
