Diasporic Trajectories Seminar Series 2016

Diaspora studies is a growing area of research within the broader field of postcolonial studies. Its principal focus is the ways in which the experiences of migrant and displaced communities have been represented in thought, literature and art. With the aim of encouraging underexplored comparative perspectives this seminar series will probe diaspora-related themes in a diverse range of ways. There will be two papers at each of the 4 seminars, separated by a coffee break. Seminar 5 will be given over to postgraduate work in the field. The series is organised by the Diaspolinks research group and is open to all.
