Workshop: Oral and Visual Memories of Migration: Interdisciplinary Responses and Approaches to the Bodies Across Borders in Europe Project
The BABE project is based at the Department of History and Civilization of the European University Institute (Florence).
The BABE research team is glad to announce a workshop with Utrecht University through CCHR (research focus area Cultures, Citizenship and Human Rights), since the latter’s central aims (producing critically engaged research on citizenship in/and Europe) coincide with the objectives of the BABE project. Scholars and artists/curators affiliated with Utrecht University who specialize in issues of migration, memory and visuality in relation to Europe are invited to present responses and reflections from their field of expertise on the aims and results of the BABE project.
Attendance is free, but space is limited. If you wish to attend the seminar, please send an email to Milica Trakilovic: M.Trakilovic@uu.nl
