Migrant Academics’ Narratives of Precarity and Resilience in Europe

Tuesday 16 May 2023, 16:00 to 18:00
Brussels School of Governance, Lisbon & Rome meeting room, -1 floor

A talk with the book editors
Dr. Olga Burlyuk and Dr. Ladan Rahbari
in conversation with Dr. Memory Mphaphuli 

A walk-through of precarity, racialisation, systematic forms of discrimination and gendered hierarchies written and narrated by migrant academics working in universities of the Global North. Building on precarity as a critical concept for challenging social exclusion or forming political collectives, the authors move away from conventional academic styles, instead adopting autobiography and autoethnography as methods of intersectional scholarly analysis. This approach creatively challenges the divisions between the system and the individual, the mind and the soul, the objective and the subjective, as well as science, theory, and art.
