I am please to circulate details of the:

Inaugural meeting of the migration special interest group and tour of the Refugee Council Archive

Thursday, February 9: 3pm – 5pm

Oral historians are invited to come together and discuss the role of the migration special interest group and to make plans for the future.

We would especially welcome the opportunity to discuss the role of the group, consider funding opportunities and to seek thoughts and opinions on what our aims and directions should be.

We have an opportunity to apply for research funding and would welcome feedback on what colleagues view as important areas for research within this field.

The meeting will include a tour of the Refugee Council Archive, one of the largest collections of archival materials relating to refugee and forced migration studies .

The meeting will take place on the University of East London Docklands Campus on Thursday February 9 between 3pm and 5pm. If you know of any colleagues that may be interested in attending this event, please do let us know.
