Making Home Away: Symposium (Covid Canceled--> Journal)
Alongside co-investigators Professor Vicki Squire and Professor Suzan Ilcan, I am co-investigating a one day symposium on migration, with an attention to what it means to make home, away, at the University of Reading on June 12, 2020.
We have had to delay this event due to emerging situations, and its work will be collated instead within various outputs. More information will be available on our digital archive, "Making Home Away" to be launched in June, 2020.
