Toxteth Library, Windsor Street, L81XF Liverpool
As a follow-up event to the crucial workshop “Refugees in Literature, Film, Art, and Media”, this exciting panel explores various streams of migration across European history. By juxtaposing research on recent and past migrants from West Indies to Eastern Europe to Central Asia, these panellists aim to defy common stereotypes while dissecting storytelling strategies employed by certain media outlets. We look forward to welcoming to Liverpool Daniel Trilling, whose acclaimed publication Lights in the Distance, investigates Europe’s atrocious conduct at its borders towards recent refugees from Africa and Asia.

Journalist Daniel Trilling will be in conversation with Dr. Kathy Burrell (University of Liverpool), Reader in Human Geography with interests in migration, especially aspects relating to mobility, memory, material culture and cultural representation, and is a specialist in Polish migration particularly; Dr. Arshad Isakjee (University of Liverpool), a social and urban geographer who specialises in identity, belonging, security and the governance of communities; author and PhD candidate Emy Onuora (Liverpool John Moores University), Pitch Black The Story of Black British Footballers (Biteback Publishing), and hosted by Lida Amiri University of Liverpool), 'Language Lounge' Language Adviser (French) and PhD Candidate in Comparative Literature at the Department of Histories, Languages and Cultures.

This event will be held at the Toxteth Library as part of the 2018 Writing on the Wall Black History Month festival and in association with the AHRC 'Translating Cultures’ theme.

Advanced booking is essential (general admission £5, reduced £3)
