Programme 2018
 

As “right-wing populism,” neofascism, and other far right political formations gain recognition and political power across the Western world, questions regarding belonging, citizenship and borders come to the fore. Moments such as this also conjure concerns regarding the role of affect, emotion, and narrative in political discourse; questions about democracy as a form of governance; and the creation and practice of modes of resistance. Crisis moments create scapegoats, targets and abject populations; foremost among these groups are migrants. This conversation explores the kind of work that migration- as a signifier, discourse, and literal process of movement- is capable of doing politically in times of crisis.
