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’, featuring a keynote lecture from Professor Nina Glick-Schiller and Professor Rob Ford. Exploring Brexit and migration, this lecture - on Monday 30 October - is open to all staff, students and members of the public.

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 alumn Gulwali Passarlay
  • a theatre performance entitled Be//Longing, from 31 October to 4 November.
