Nafiseh Mousavi: “Non-human in refugee narratives,” post-doc research application in-progress

Välkommen till det veckovisa IMS-seminariet!

This seminar is in English.

Welcome to next week’s IMS seminar, where Nafiseh Mousavi will present her ideas for a possible post-doc project on  “Non-human in refugee narratives”. 


My idea is to look at a range of literary media products (novels, graphic novels, and autobiographical narratives) that represent the refugee experience, mainly from an insider’s perspective. The aim is to look at the ecology of the refugee experience, as depicted in these works, by investigating the human/non-human interactions that determine the refugees' journeys, border-crossings, and encampment experiences. This investigation is intended to be further situated in the broader frame of ‘precarity of human-ness’ that affects the refugee situation.

Lars Elleström's text seminar originally scheduled on this day has been postponed. See the events list on our main website for updated information.
