CMRB (The Centre for research on Migration, Refugees and Belonging) at the University of East London is delighted to announce:
Borderscapes: Borders and Bordering in Contemporary Europe (EUBORDERSCAPES Policy & Impact Conference)
The conference will take place 10th–12th November 2015 at Docklands Campus, University of East London, E16 2RD, nearest tube: Cyprus DLR
EUBORDERSCAPES is an international research project funded through the EU’s FP7 Programme. Since 2013, the project has explored conceptual change in relation to the fundamental social, economic, cultural and geopolitical transformations that have taken place in relation to borders and bordering in and around the EU in the past three decades. This is large-scale project with a consortium that includes 22 partner institutions from 17 different states, incorporating several non-EU countries.
As an EU funded project, EUBORDERSCAPES has a strong policy orientation. The purpose of this conference is to disseminate the major research findings of the project to EU and other European policy-makers, activist groups, academics and other interested parties whilst at the same time providing a space for engaged discussion on the themes arising from the project. Various leading representatives of these groups will be speaking at the conference on a range of topics that include: The Reconfiguration of Post Soviet Borders and Conceptual Change; Borders and Critical Geographies of Neighbourhoods; Post Colonial Bordering and Euro-African Borderscapes and Borders, Intersectionality and the Everyday. There will also be a film festival that exhibits films based on ethnographic work conducted by different project partners, drama-based workshops exploring the conference themes and guided walks around London’s borderscapes.
FULL PROGRAMME WILL BE CIRCULATED SHORTLY
