GLOCAL Hot Spot seminar: Decentering and decolonizing migration research

Tuesday 4 June 2024, 3:30 pm - 5 pm

The GLOCAL Hot Spot invites you to a seminar entitled Decentering and decolonizing migration research, featuring political scientist Dr. Beste Isleyen and human geographer Dr. Joris Schapendonk and moderated by Dr. Nora Stel.

As most other fields and disciplines in contemporary academia migration studies has struggled with ambitions to decenter its knowledge production and decolonize its epistemologies. Fundamental questions remain to be broadly taken up: What could or should decolonizing migration studies mean? How to practically realize it? What can be done to ensure such efforts are not merely rhetorical or cosmetic? The third session of GLOCAL’s lecture series on interdisciplinary migration studies has the aim to explicate and reflect on the political, institutional, and methodological dimensions of various approaches to decolonizing and decentering migration studies.

The seminar will be held on 4 June 2024 at 15:30-17:00 at EOS 01.110 and is organized as part of the ‘Revisiting Interdisciplinary Migration Studies’ seminar series created in the context of the NWO-Veni project ‘The Power of Inaction and Ambivalence in Transnational Refugee Governance,’ in collaboration with the Horizon-Europe GAPs project
