‘The Student Life Cycle’

A one day academic symposium on 30th August 2018 at Kings College London, UK, as the final day of the three day 8th annual Article 26 (http://article26.hkf.org.uk/about-us ) conference.

This academic symposium aims to explore whether access to university fulfils the aspirations of individuals who have been forcibly displaced and sought not just asylum but opportunities in higher edcuation. This raises questions around the role played by higher education in the lives of forced migrants in minimising and/or exacerbating experiences of limbo and belonging. With increasing attention being paid to refugee reception, especially within Europe in the wake of the Syrian refugee crisis, higher education institutions around the world have been turning their attention to the contribution that they might make to welcoming and supporting sanctuary seekers. The past two years have consequently seen a proliferation of ‘sanctuary scholarships’, and in turn researchers have started to turn their attention to the experiences of forced migrants in higher education as well as institutional responses to the refugee challenge. However, questions remain around issues of student aspirations, the forced migrant experience of higher education, and societal participation beyond, and the agency of students to shape their own experiences within and destinies post university.

This one day conference at Kings College London, part of the annual Article 26 conference, will bring together researchers and practitioners working in this burgeoning field to present and discuss new work on forced migrants (asylum seekers and refugees) in higher education. To submit an abstract please send a 200 word (max) abstract plus a short bio to Rebecca Murray ([log in to unmask]) by June 1st 2018. Topics of interest may include, but are not limited to:
 
- The experiences of forced migrants in higher education in different host country contexts
- Institutional responses to the refugee challenge
- Xenophobia, racism and feeling unwelcome
- Impact of immigration on studying
- Opportunities for the reclamation of agency
- Experiences of limbo and belonging

The Article 26 conference will cover 3 days 28th – 30th August 2018. Day one will be for sanctuary scholars to get together and discuss the challenges that they face at university, as well as take part in training workshops focussed on their needs; day two is aimed at university practitioners supporting sanctuary scholars and will be focused on the particular challenges that they face; day three will be an academic symposium where research expertise in this area will be shared.

The fee for this one day conference will be £50. Information on the location of KCL can be found here: https://www.kcl.ac.uk/study/visit/undergraduate-open-days/travel.aspx . Early May 2018, information will disseminated regarding the organisational arrangements and how to book your place at the conference. In the meantime, do contact Anne-Marie Henderson: [log in to unmask] at KCL with any logistical questions.
