Critical Refugee Studies Multi-Campus Research Programs and Initiatives Grantee Conference
Critical Refugee Studies: “Time and Space"
Friday, April 27 and Saturday, April 28, 2018 at UCLA
This event features 2017-18 grantees and their scholarly, artistic, and community-based projects that focus on Time and Space, projects that shift the reference point in refugee studies from that of the state, humanitarian organizations, and policy makers to that of the refugees. We conceptualize time and space not as natural and fixed but as materially and discursively produced through the expansion of empire, (neo)colonialism, and militarism, and as unsettled and remade by refugees. Projects include but are not limited to: geographies of displacement; refugee mobility; settler colonialism and refugee resettlement; detention, incarceration, deportation; refugee camps; waiting; refugee time; memory work; making/taking space; public and private space; community building, etc.
