As part of the collaborative international Night spaces: migration, culture and IntegraTion in Europe (NITE) project, we have launched a new website that will act as an ongoing resource for the research.

nightspace.net has information on the five European subprojects that form the overall project, funded with a €1m award by Humanities in the European Research Area (HERA). The project is led by Dr Sara Brandellero at Leiden University, and the UCL team is led by Prof Ben Campkin, with research fellow Lo Marshall, and associated researcher Prof Matthew Beaumont.

On the website you can also sign up to a newsletter, and find links to follow the project on social media.
