The RSC's international Refugee Voices conference explored the voices and aesthetic expressions of those dispossessed, displaced and marginalised by the pre-eminence of the nation-state

About the event

Refugee Voices brought together scholars from across the social sciences and researchers in cultural studies, literature and the humanities to look beyond the nation-state and international relations in order to give new attention to the voices and aspirations of refugees and other forced migrants themselves. 

Among the themes explored were the historical and cultural sources and meanings of flight, exile and forced migration, as well as the significance of encampment, enclosures and forced settlement.
