Crucibles of Exile: Palestinian education and the politics of regeneration, 1948 - 1967

Refugee Histories in the Global South
RSC Public Seminar Series, Hilary Term 2021

How does forced migration look different if we examine it through a historical perspective? How have refugees been historical actors, as well as victims? This series examines a range of topics that illuminate these questions, by examining the historical entanglements between migration, im/mobility, colonialism, race, and borders.

Convenor: Dr. Anne Irfan
