Event description

The BISR Home and Exile Working Group are holding a Reading Group focusing on debates around art and culture in exile. We will start by reading an article by Jacqueline Adams on 'Art and Exile' and then a paper by Edward Said on Mona Hatoum.

Free event open to all: Please contact if you wish to attend and to receive a copy of the readings.

The Home and Exile Working Group tries to think about migration in a different way, as a loss of homeland but also the making of a new home and asks, what makes it possible for people to feel at home in exile and, how can academics intervene in the conversation about immigration in ways that produce new discourses that resist racism through insisting on the right of people to feel at home in the world.
