Migration and Wellbeing: Lecture Series at the British Museum
Part of the UCL Public Engagement Beacon programme, Migration and Wellbeing
is a series of public seminars and lectures developed by UCL
Anthropology in cooperation with, and hosted by, the British Museum.
Held over the academic year 2009-10, the series opens up a space for a
broader conversation that incorporates not only UCL staff and students,
but also local communities' knowledge, experience and opinions.
All lectures take place at the Stevenson / BP lecture theatres, British Museum.
