Activity: Talk or presentation › Talk at a public lecture/debate
Roll on, Roll on, Phenomena hosted exhibition space Peach in studio 115. In turn, Peach invited Historian Marjolein Schepers to give a lecture on migration. In Schepers’ lecture, she focussed on notions of the migrant as the unknown, the other, not belonging to the home nor host community. Marjolein discussed negotiations and conflicts concerning which community is responsible for migrants, using her current research project on eighteenth-century Flanders and France as an example. This lecture provided deeper insights into the boundaries of communities, the membership of migrants and the problematization of migration.
