Migration in Digital Space: Experiences, Change and Resistance

The international seminar cycle Migration in Digital Space: experiences, change and resistance aims at developing an interdisciplinary framework to analyse how migration is constructed, transformed and mapped by/within digital space, in order to expand our knowledge on its impact in both online and offline space. The seminar cycle intends to contribute to improving and fostering knowledge in regard to contemporary global challenges encompassing migration, forced displacement and refugee movement. Furthermore, it seeks to harmonize dialogue between the social sciences and digital technology fields, and move towards offering innovative contributions to public policy.

Migration in Digital Space: Experiences, Change and Resistance

In these seminars we wish to debate the role of digital technologies in migration in several domains:

  • New methodologies and techniques of applied investigation to migration studies (digital ethnographies);
  • The use of digital technologies and ‘Big data’ by the state as an information source, and control and monitorization tools in managing migratory processes;
  • Critique of the expansion of hate discourses towards migrants and ethnic minorities;
  • The increase in inequalities in regard to access to information (i.e., digital divide);
  • The visibilization and production of new practices of participation and resistance through digital space from migrants and civil society organizations;

The sessions strive to include a variety of speakers from different backgrounds, including academics, artists, media professionals and political representatives, with events taking place every three months and held in the hybrid format.
