The Spatiotemporal Politics of Displacement

SPD Event

Event details

Tuesday 25 January 2022


On 25 January 2022, the IGSD welcomed Professor Shahram Khosravi (Stockholm University), Dr Ann Zuntz (University of Edinburgh), and Karam Yahya (Humboldt University), three important scholars who have contributed to understandings of both space and time in displacement. Drawing from the panellists’ research and lived experiences of displacement, the panel examined temporal themes, such as waiting and uncertainty, alongside spatial themes, such as border crossings and humanitarian spaces. We situated the conversation within the ever-changing context of the Covid-19 pandemic in which both time and space have taken on new and more immediate meanings. Panellists also reflected on the unique temporalities and spatialities of conducting fieldwork with displaced communities.

The panel was moderated by Dr Melissa Gatter, Postdoctoral Research Associate on the UKRI GCRF project PPE & Refugees at the IGSD.
