Faculty of Humanities launches Manchester Migration Month

9 October 2017

The Faculty of Humanities has begun its first-ever Manchester Migration Month - a series of events, activities and features that explore migration's relationship with inequality, social justice, belonging and Brexit.

From 9 October to 4 November, we'll be engaging with alumni, policymakers, international academics and the public through events and activities taking place from the heart of our campus and extending across the city and beyond.

The month will include Manchester Migration Lab’s inaugural international conference, entitled ‘World on the Move: Migration, Societies and Change’. Held from 30 October to 1 November at the Chancellors Hotel, Fallowfield, the ticketed conference will provide an arena for discussion, debate, and the development of future research projects. 

The conference will begin with a 'Brexit and Migration' discussion day, running from 12pm-7pm with notable speakers including The University of Manchester’s Professor Nina Glick-Schiller and Professor Rob Ford. This free event, held at University Place, is open to all.

Other events and activities include:

  • participation in the city-wide Journeys Festival, from 2 to 15 October
  • the University’s prestigious Foundation Day lecture, on Wednesday 11 October, delivered by refugee and Politics alumnus Gulwali Passarlay
  • a theatre performance entitled Be//Longing, from 31 October to 4 November.
