4th Annual Bailey Alumni Lecture "The crisis of belonging in contemporary Europe"

11/02/2018 - 3:00pm
WT Young Library, UKAA Auditorium
Speaker(s) / Presenter(s): 
Mary Gilmartin, Maynooth University
The 'migration crisis' in contemporary Europe has received substantial attention from academics, policy makers and the general public. In this talk, I argue that the interest in numbers, flows and routes of people seeking sanctuary in Europe has diverted attention from another, substantial crisis: the crisis of belonging. By focusing on the practices and experiences of belonging, I show how formal belonging is being undermined in contemporary Europe and discuss the broader implications for this for people who seek to call Europe home.
