Few will dispute that the study of migration involves numerous possible disciplinary routes and methodologies of research. With this conference, the Centre for the Study of Migration brings together scholars, practitioners and performers from several continents. They work in the fields of: anthropology, geography, governance, languages, law, literature, media, medicine, philosophy, physics, and politics. They will be expressing themselves through traditional academic papers, through poetry, through music, through film, through photography, and through insights from their daily practice. Based physically at the heart of Britain’s migration story, we will have the option of a walking tour of London’s East End and a conference dinner at a local Lebanese restaurant. We hope that you will join us and help us to explore Migration Across the Disciplines.

and please specify whether you hope to come on Thursday’s walk, as there are limited places on the walk.

*There is no registration fee, but attendees will be expected to supply their own lunch (there are numerous reasonably priced cafes in and around the campus) and pay for the conference dinner, should they wish to join.

Information about Panels
Each panel is made up of three or four presenters that are grouped broadly. It is hoped that the presenters will discuss their work for 15-20 minutes each. We will then have a generous time for discussion. During this time it is hoped that everyone present will have the opportunity to engage with what has been said in the panel, and also bring in themes from the rest of the conference
