Members of HOMELandS will participate in the ‘Rights and Might: Cultural Counter-Narratives of the Migrant and Refugee Experiences’ conference as part of this year’s Refugee Week.

Rights and Might encourages discussion of the hidden opportunities and unspoken challenges faced by migrants and refugees. The objective is to unravel little known personal and positive stories of migrants in changing contexts and to detail their agency, including their vital contributions to reshaping cultural landscapes and artistic expression.

The event is being organised by University of Westminster's Communication and Media Research Institute (CAMRI), Centre for Research and Education in Arts and Media (CREAM) and Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities, and is to be held from 22 - 25 June 2017.

Federica Mazzara is a member of the organising committee and will chair Panel 2c: Power, Conflict and Securitisation.

HOMELandS members who will attend the conference and present their research include:

  • Federica Mazzara - Archiving the memory of the migratory passage in the Mediterranean: Porto M in Lampedusa
  • Denise Kwan - The Talking of objects: migratory experiences and subjectivity of British Chinese women
