Refugee Tales

Refugee Tales: why do we listen?

As scholars and researchers, how might we listen to the voices of refugees who tell tales of their experiences? What contribution or difference might listening make?  What effects might listening have on the story-tellers themselves? Come along to an informal lunchtime presentation and discussion of these questions.

Riam Ismael will tell us about her current MA research with Syrian refugees seeking to embark on Higher Education.
Professor Avril Loveless will tell us about ‘Refugee Tales’, a walk and tale-telling performance from Canterbury to London in solidarity with refugees and detainees in July.

Wednesday 11th May: 12 – 1.30(ish)
Room Checkland B406, Falmer, University of Brighton

All welcome – staff, students, friends. Bring your lunch. Bring your questions. Copies of ‘Refugee Tales’ published by Comma Press in April will be available.

This event is part of the MARS sponsored Refugee Month.
