CONF : Workshop « Family Migration in Times of Crisis » — Tuesday, 15 June 2021, 1:30pm – 4:30pm (CET), online

The ‘Family Migra­tion in Times of Crisis’ work­shop will explore the impacts of crisis on family migra­tion, how family migrants respond to crises, and inter­twined tempo­ral­i­ties of crisis and migra­tion. The crises to be consid­ered include, most obvi­ously, the Covid-19 pandemic and its impacts on cross-border move­ment, key services, and partic­ular popu­la­tions ; but could also include refugee crises, Brexit, recent events on the US-Mexico border, and other water­shed moments in national, local or personal contexts. By including crises at the personal level, we invite consid­er­a­tion of how indi­vidual or familial periods of partic­ular chal­lenge are inter­re­lated with processes of family migra­tion, and new explo­rations of the rela­tion­ships between the personal and polit­ical in this context.

If you wish to attend the event without presenting, please send your inquiry to : runomi@ru.nl.
There will be a virtual ”bar” after the work­shop for informal networking and catching up.
