This inaugural arts-based conference will launch Manchester Met’s Centre for Migration and Postcolonial Studies (MAPS) and will take place online on 3rd September 2021.
The conference will address the topics of ‘borders’ and ‘boundaries’ in relation to the literature and writing of migration that reflects current developments in the fields of migration and postcolonial studies. This includes the refugee experience, the climate crisis, transnationalism, the writing of place and displacement, and literatures of trauma, including genre-based studies that relate to spectral spaces and the postcolonial gothic.
