"My Fourth Time, We Drowned": Exploring Migrant Journeys, Agency and Exclusion with author Sally Hayden
Sally Hayden, Amera Markous, Marthe Achtnich, Jeff Crisp
Special seminars and lectures
Tuesday, 26 April 2022, 2pm to 4pm
Online via Zoom
Hosted by Refugee Studies Centre
Sally Hayden's new book "My Fourth Time, We Drowned" explores the human side of state efforts to control and contain mobility. Beyond a condemnation of NGOs and the United Nations, the book is an intimate portrait of the life of people on the move who become captives during their journeys. The book highlights the resilience of humans: how refugees and migrants locked up for years fall in love, support each other through the hardest times, and carry out small acts of resistance in order to survive in a system that wants them to be silent and disappear.
Sally Hayden will present her work to a virtual audience on 26 April at 2-4 pm (UK) in this online event. This will lead to a discussion of the book’s implications across multiple regions and themes.
Our panellists include:
Amera Markous, Humanitarian researcher
Dr Marthe Achtnich, Senior Demy at Magdalen College, University of Oxford
Dr Jeff Crisp, Research Associate, Refugee Studies Centre, University of Oxford
