Engagement and impact

Workshops and events

On 8 November 2018 Bridget Anderson intervened in the Sawyer Seminar at the New School in NYC to speak about how political affiliations and mobilities could be reimagined; how theories of migration shift if we consider movement beyond the frames of sovereignty and territory; and how art and design practices help us reimagine bordering. She was also in conversation with artist Ingo Niermann on these topics (WP5).

On 14 November 2018 Bridget Anderson intervened in the Migration Studio seminar of the New School in NYC to talk about diverse approaches towards designing and structuring migration research. She was also interviewed about migration and time on the Migration Studio podcast (WP5).

On 16 April 2019, ACH and Migration Mobilities Bristol hosted the third in the series of joint workshops, on the topic of Language. The audience was made of academics from various universities across the South West and Wales.

The first workshop of the Migration Mobilities Bristol research challenge Bodies, Borders, Justice, entitled Arts against racism and borders, was held on 13 May 2019. Bridget Anderson and Pier-Luc Dupont invited Zita Holbourne, who had contributed to an ETHOS on the Grenfell fire and political injustice, to discuss the possibilities of the arts, and particularly the creativity of migrants themselves, to shape public discourses and perceptions of free movement. The event was attended by a dozen academics from arts and humanities, policy studies, sociology and law (WP4).

On 3 July 2019 Pier-Luc Dupont offered the presentation ‘Migrant workers, exploitative discrimination and racism’ during an informal of the UN Special Rapporteur on the Human Rights of Migrants, hosted by Migration Mobilities Bristol (WP6).

On 22 November 2019 Migration Mobilities Bristol held an informal meeting with Bristol MP Thangam Debonnaire, chaired by Bridget Anderson.

On 17 December 2019 Migration Mobilities Bristol held a brainstorming session on Migration and Education, bringing together some 15 researchers from the School of Education and other disciplines, where ETHOS studies on education were introduced.

In 2019 the Tribunal delivered its judgement on Hostile Environment, a set of policy measures implemented by the UK government since 2012 to make life in the country as difficult as possible for undocumented migrants.
