Migration, Memory and Identity

Thursday, May 18, 2017 -
12:30pm to 2:00pm
Pitt Rivers Museum, Oxford
Lecture Theatre

Co-hosted by TORCH and the Pitt Rivers Museum, this event will look at how identity, memory and migration are woven together and threaded through into narratives that we see in literature, history, politics and current issues facing the world today. How does migration and the physical end point contribute to the construction and/or reconstruction of identity? How can objects and collections represent, explore, and promote discussion of migration, memory and collective and individual identity? 

Join us and Elleke Boehmer (Professor of World Literature in English, University of Oxford and TORCH Director), Gayle Lonergan and Karma Nabulsi (Professor in Politics and International Relations, University of Oxford) for this timely discussion. This event will be chaired by Dr Laura van Broekhoven (Director, Pitt Rivers Museum).

This event is part of the 'Humanities & Identities' Lunchtime Seminar Series. 

Free to attend, open to all, and lunch provided. 

Lunch will be available from 12.30-1pm. Discussion and Q&A 1-2pm.
