Public Seminar Series, Trinity term 2023
Series convened by Dr Uttara Shahani
About the series
This term’s public seminar series focuses on Refugee History. The speakers will cover a range of themes: the global history of India’s ideas and practices surrounding the refugee, how British church leaderships responded to refugee ‘crises’ in the early twentieth century, the history and politics of UNRWA’s interactions with Palestinian communities, and the history of Uyghur displacement through a communication and media lens. The seminar series will offer critical insights into the background of issues concerning refugees today.

All seminars will take place on Tuesdays at 1-2pm in Seminar Room 1, Oxford Department of International Development, 3 Mansfield Road, Oxford, OX1 3TB. Please check the date of each seminar.
