Shadows of the Dawn: Migration and the Indeterminacy of Community and Immunity

The aim of these two workshops is to incite debate and practical knowledge exchange between fields  – theatre, social works, education, human geography, political science, ethnography, media arts – on pressing questions regarding notions of "imagined communities" during the current resurgence of ethno-nationalism, exemplified by xenophobic hostilities, divergent responses to the so-called refugee crisis, Britain voting to leave the European Union, the election of Donald Trump, the rise of right wing populism on the European continent. During the symposia-workshops, participants will consider interlinked focal points that deal with community and immunity.
