Hospitality/’Hostipitality’: Tensions and Contradictions in the reception and treatment of migrants in the University, Ireland and Europe

Dr Malene Jacobsen and Dr Barry Cannon
Monday, March 9, 2020 - 09:00 to 16:30
MUSSI Seminar Room 2.31, Iontas Building, North Campus

Dr Malene H. Jacobsen, Department of Geography and Dr Barry Cannon, Department of Sociology are organizing a one-day seminar inspired by Derrida’s concept of ‘hostipitality’.

This seminar seeks to explore how meanings – of hostility and hospitality - manifest themselves in Europe and Ireland. Bringing together scholars from a range of disciplines and representatives of local refugee and migrant groups, we will further discuss what role of the University – and the Social Sciences – can play in the reception and treatment of migrants.
