Public Lecture by Dr Leon Sealey-Huggins

What’s the point of climate action without climate justice? A case study inspired by the Caribbean predicament

In this lecture, we will consider the ongoing environmental and social catastrophe that is climate breakdown. We will ask the question, is climate breakdown a ‘human product’, or, rather, the product of some humans? Looking at the case of climate breakdown in the Caribbean helps us to answer this question, as well as to better understand the need for climate justice in any response. Along with this, considering the much-discussed United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change’s (UNFCCC) Conference of Parties (COP) and the 2015 Paris Agreement will help us address these points and connect session 3 with the historical perspective presented in session 2.

Lecture title: Global Multiple Migration: Class-Based Mobility Capital of Elite Chinese Gay Men

Abstract: The present study examines how global multiple migration—a pattern of migration characterised by multiple changes of destination internationally in one’s lifetime—becomes a strategy and a form of capital employed by highly educated, Chinese self-identified gay men to navigate social stigmatisation, negotiate family pressure, circumvent state oppression, and achieve desired life goals. By examining the intersection between sexuality, migration, and class, the present study contributes to two bodies of literature. For the migration literature, it explores how relationships between sexuality and migration are mediated by classed-based capital. It adds to the discussion that migration has increasingly become a multi-directional and open-ended process. For the class and social inequality literature, it seeks to understand how global multiple migration has become an element of social stratification and generates mobility capital. It also highlights how sexuality influences the value of mobility capital for the pursuit of an authentic self.
