Representations: Powers and Pitfalls

It is not only rules that define migrants. Social scientists are beginning to acknowledge the ways in which research itself contributes to the making of ‘migrants’. Exploration of migration in multiple forms, and a coming together of social science and the humanities in exploring the experience of mobility, mark important new developments. The structures of feeling that such narratives evoke are often invoked most powerfully through creative expression such as the poems and images incorporated within this site.

‘Representations’ includes discussion on: migration in the media, super-diversity and migration stories.
