Displacement and Diaspora: Excluded Identities

Humber Liberal Arts Conference

Displacement and Diaspora: Excluded Identities

9:00am

Saturday, September 30, 2023

Main Loft

90 mins

Exploring displacement in three distinct parts of the world, this panel makes the specific and personal universal. One panelist will present a study dedicated to uncovering the driving forces that push Sub-Saharan African migrants to choose dangerous, off-the-beaten-path routes, particularly in Morocco. Another examines the predicament of crime displacement in Nigeria, and its harmful consequences, with an emphasis on women and children in internally displaced- person camps across Nigeria, while the third uses a study of Palestinian refugee poetics to seek a deeper understanding of the experiences of diasporic communities in hopes of challenging dominant narratives that perpetuate the marginalization of refugees and foster a more inclusive and diverse understanding of displacement in contemporary society.

This event is part of the annual interdisciplinary Humber Liberal Arts Conference.

Presenters:

Siham Soulaimi (Faculty of Languages, Arts, and Human Sciences at Ait Melloul)

Tony Onyema (University of Ibadan, Vivendi Media Concepts)

Waed Hasan (SETS Department, University of Guelph)
