We are pleased to share this event on 'Engaging Regfugee Narratives: Perspecitves from Academia and the Arts' which will be held at the UCL Anthropology Department.

Engaging Refugee Narratives explores how narratives by and about refugees and migrants are disseminated, how ideas become shared and meaningful to a larger group, how influence builds. The three sessions of this event focus on digital forms of communication and online archiving, graphic memoir and cartooning, varied forms of live performance of telling stories. Over two days at University College London, talks, demonstrations, interactive workshops, and roundtable discussions are led by researchers, artists, writers, activists and practitioners. All sessions are open to the public.

This event, the third in our series, recognizes the need to signal the importance of engagement with the narratives not only of refugees but the many others whose lives are in transition. Ultimately we hope that such engagement and interventions pave the way towards social transformations.
