We are pleased to host an exciting workshop that will explore multi-disciplinary perspectives on Migration, Care, Language and Identity at the University of Reading on 3 November 2016. The programme includes:

  • Keynote from Eleonore Kofman, Professor of Gender, Migration & Citizenship, Middlesex University
  • Presentations of research findings from Reading academic staff and from practitioners working with refugees and migrants
  • Presentation of preliminary findings from Ruth Evans’ research on Forced Migration, Care and Family Relations in the South East of England, followed by a panel discussion with practitioners, including the Refugee Council and Children’s Society Include Project
  • Keynote from Jean-Marc Dewaele, Professor in Applied Linguistics and Multilingualism, Birkbeck, University of London


Art work produced in participatory workshops with refugees living with chronic illness and with young people from migrant backgrounds as part of Ruth Evans’ research will also be exhibited.
