[Commlist] Digitized Global Mobilities Seminar & Workshop

Sun Mar 03 22:37:17 GMT 2019

You are cordially invited to our two day seminar & workshop  entitled “Digitized Global Mobilities” we are organising at Utrecht University on 3 - 4 June 2019.

This international event seeks to address questions on the digital features of forced mobility; how technology shapes the approaches of migrant’ security, particularly the unintended effects of digitization and social media use. The workshops aims to bring together multiple stakeholders: NGO representatives, social workers, media representatives (e.g. Dutch Refugee Council, Dutch Association for Migration Research, European institutions, IOM, UNHCR) and academics.

The first day of our event is a Seminar with invited speakers from different disciplines, the second day is organised in Workshops to facilitate interactive knowledge exchange and inclusion of visual material. For the Workshop sessions we invite papers, films and art works that rethink issues of the ‘digital’ in the study of human mobility and security.

  * Prof. Dr. Myria Georgiou, London School of Economics and Political
  * Prof. Dr. Katerina Linos, UC Berkeley School of Law
  * Dr. Annalisa Pelizza, University of Twente
