Symposium organised by the PhD Migration Reading Group
The Goldsmiths PhD Migration Reading Group invites postgraduates, early career researchers, activists, scholars and artists to intervene in the current debate surrounding racism and migration in light of the shifts in global politics and discourses as exemplified by Brexit. The leave campaign in the UK based their arguments on inflammatory racist, anti-immigrant rhetoric and the invocation of a fictitious sense of British identity reminiscent of the imagined golden era of empire. By exploring this post-Brexit context through multiple lenses including wider geographical perspectives, different scales and methods, we aim to provide a poly-vocal space that can show how the intersection of migration, citizenship, race and racism operates and is experienced. The aim is to bring together a group of senior scholars and PhD researchers who in their different fields and disciplines, work on subjects related to racism and migration both in the Global North and South.
