Refugee Archives News
The Refugee Council Archives at UEL Weekly Bulletin
Many apologies for the slightly belated circulation of this the third issue of Refugee Archive News: The Refugee Council Archives at UEL (hopefully) Weekly Bulletin.
This bulletin has the aim of providing both the latest news and developments on the Refugee Council Archive at the University of East London whilst also providing additional information on issues of concern to refugee and forced migration studies more generally. This I hope will include details of news stories, calls for papers, conferences and seminars, and online resources of potential interest. This bulletin, I hope, will aim to provide useful information to both students and academics on both UEL undergraduate courses in International Development and postgraduate students on our courses in Refugee Studies; Refugee Studies and Community Development and Conflict, Displacement and Human Security, whilst also being hopefully of interest to a wider readership represented by our Twitter and Blog followers.
This bulletin will be circulated via our Refugee Archive WordPress blog and also via our Refugee-Research Jiscmail email list. We would welcome any feedback that you may have on this bulletin and we would also welcome any input that you may have in terms of current and future content for both this bulletin and also our WordPress blog more generally. Please Contact Paul Dudman via email (email@example.com) or Twitter (@PaulDudman) with any feedback or thoughts that you may have.
There are also some general Archive details included at the end of this and every bulletin posting for your reference.
