Migration, Law and the Image: Beyond the Veil of Ignorance
5pm-7.30pm, Thursday 16 June 2011
Christopher Ingold Chemistry Lecture Theatre, Christopher Ingold Building,
20 Gordon Street, London, WC1H 0AJ
Speaker Professor W.J.T Mitchell, Professor of English and Art History, University of Chicago
Chair and convenor Dr Federica Mazzara (UCL Italian)
Respondents Professor Parvati Nair (Queen Mary), Professor of Hispanic Cultural Studies and Head of the Queen Mary Centre for the Study of Migration and Dr Ingrid Boccardi (UCL Laws).
Examining a range of examples from science fiction narratives of alien species, to stories of conquest, colonization, and ethnic cleansing, to the development of contemporary practices of detention and border policing, the lecture will argue that immigration in our time has ceased to be a merely transitional phase in human life, and threatens to become a permanent condition for growing numbers of people.
