Understanding Migration, Gender and Race in London. This Summer School will engage with concepts in human migration by looking at London as a case study. As of 2019, London was home to 3.3 m foreign-born people out of a total population of 8.9 m. What is migration? Who is a migrant? Why do people migrate? Starting with these basic questions, the Summer School will go on to explore the links between migration, race and gender. How do gender and race intersect with migration? How do they affect migrants’ sense of belonging? The aim is to understand the linkages between migration and some of the thorniest issues of our time such as racism and Islamophobia by using examples specific to London or/and the UK. We will pursue these aims via an exciting mix of lectures, field trip, guest talks and discussion sessions. You will be encouraged to prepare and present a creative piece on the last day of class which can be an artwork/ poster/short video.
