Lecture series: race and migration - scholarship in between, on and beyond the borders

20 January 2021

ACES launches a new online lecture series titled “Race and Migration - scholarship in between, on and beyond the borders”. Starting January 27th with prof. Fatima El-Tayeb, the series invites speakers and the audience to reflect on the historical divides and bridges between race and migration scholarship in Europe. During five monthly sessions, scholars from various fields are invited to discuss how they tackle the intersections between race- and migration in both their scholarly work and in institutional settings. What are the points of contestation between race- and migration studies in 21st century Europe? Why have these two fields developed parallel to, but not always in conversation with, each other?

The series is convened by Sonja Evaldsson Mellström and Eline Westra, University of Amsterdam.
