"Linking Scholarship and Activism in Migration Societies: Critical Inquiries"
December 13 at 15:00 to December 15 at 16:00, 2018.
University of Oldenburg, Germany.
In recent days, the public engagement with migration is shaped by nationalist discourses which are frequently combined with a populist rhetoric and gender-based justifications, calling for increased securitisation and the closure of international borders. The conference will pose a number of foundational questions in migration studies: How do scholars and students engage with the dynamics in the migration societies they study as well as live in? How do academics and professionals position themselves? Should migration scholarship align with activism? Does activism benefit from being grounded in scholarship? Who is producing knowledge about migration and society and how is it used?
