BREM promotes interdisciplinary dialogue across the intersecting themes of migration, 'race', ethnicity and borders, broadly defined. It serves as an open forum for sharing research, developing new and existing collaborations, and supporting early career researchers.
Key questions addressed by BREM include:
What is the social, cultural, economic and political significance of different historical and contemporary migrations?
In what ways are contemporary bordering or boundary-producing practices and dynamics changing?
How does race and ethnicity feature in the formation of identities and diverse societies?
To what extent do processes of racialisation shape regulations and differentiated experiences across diverse sites (e.g. the university, workplace or law court)?
October 5 2023 - BREM is looking for news members in 2023-24
In 2023-24, we are looking forward to meeting new PhD Students and colleagues working on related topics, interested in extending the outreach of their research and supporting our activities. We would appreciate it greatly if you could let us know of any newly arrived colleagues who might be interested in being part of the network that you know of, by sending an email to the convenors.
