Fragments at the University of Potsdam

06-05-2019 20:28



On May 2-4, 2019 Bard College Berlin and the University of Potsdam invite you to the joint symposium “Shifting Frames: Migrant Children, Politics and History”, and the exhibit 'Fragments' by Mario Badagliacca.

This symposium will critically explore policies and cultural representations of child migrants--specifically but not only those labeled as "child refugees"--in the UK and its former colonies the USA, Canada, Australia and South Africa, with comparison to our location of Germany. It aims to think towards frames beyond humanitarianism for understanding and discussing child migration and seeks ways of connecting scholarly research with activism.

On May 2 at 18:00, Professor Jacqueline Bhabha from Harvard University will deliver the keynote lecture "The Human Rights of Child Migrants: An Unfinished Agenda." This public event will take place at the University of Potsdam, Campus Am Neuen Palais, House 8, Rm 0.64, and will be followed by reception.

May 3-4 will see presentations from scholars in addition to short film screenings and photography viewings, as well as a walking tour.

This event is organized by Prof. Dr. Kerry Bystrom, Bard College Berlin; Dr. Sunčica Klaas, University of Potsdam, and Dr. Carly McLaughlin, University of Potsdam.

This major funders of this event are the Thyssen Foundation, the Universitätsgesellschaft Potsdam e.V. and the University of Potsdam, with additional support from Bard College Berlin and AlNatura.

Date & time: May 2-4, 2019
