Being Outside Afghanistan: Everyday Experiences of Social Becoming, Self‐Construction and Resource Mobilisation among Afghans Abroad

An interdisciplinary workshop

St John’s College, University of Oxford

28-29 July 2016

We are pleased to announce a two-day international workshop on what migration and belonging mean to Afghans in diverse transitory and destination settings across the globe including Europe, North America, the Eastern Mediterranean and Iran. The workshop is unique in bringing together historical research on Afghan migration together with analyses of contemporary trends such as the recent ‘migration crisis’. The workshop focuses on processes of social becoming, self‐construction and resource mobilisation in contexts of exile and prolonged displacement. We welcome participation from academic and non-academic audiences.

Funded by the University of Oxford John Fell Fund and St. John’s College Research Centre.

Convened by Zuzanna Olszewska (University of Oxford), Esra Kaytaz (Coventry University), and Carolin Fischer (University of Neuchâtel).
