Public Seminar Series, Hilary term 2021

Refugee Histories in the Global South

How does forced migration look different if we examine it through a historical perspective? How have refugees been historical actors, as well as victims? This series examines a range of topics that illuminate these questions, by examining the historical entanglements between migration, im/mobility, colonialism, race, and borders.

Series convener: Dr Anne Irfan, Departmental Lecturer in Forced Migration

She is especially interested in questions relating to settler colonialism, human rights and race and is the author of Elusive Refuge: Chinese Migrants in the Cold War (Harvard University Press, 2016). Her current SSHRC-funded research explores the history of sanctuary in Canada from the 17th century to the present, with a focus on post-Confederation sanctuary practices among a variety of religious and secular communities. She is co-director of Histoire Sociale / Social History, a member of the editorial collective at activehistory.ca and a member of the New College of Artists, Scholars and Scientists of the Royal Society of Canada.
