COMPAS Michaelmas 2021 Seminar Series

Thursdays at 4pm (Weeks 2, 4, 6 and 8) on Zoom. 

Gender, Love and Migration

Listening, telling, gathering, and imagining stories of the migrant experience matters enormously – and increasingly urgently – in its impacts upon public opinion and indirectly on public policy. This seminar series explores the narrated, the affective, relational, and performative dimensions of migrants’ experiences of agency and exploitation in different gendered social settings with a particular focus on ‘love’. 

This series is convened by Dikmen Yakali
