Diversity Colloquium: Emotions in Crisis: The Consequences of Ceremonial Refugee Camp Visits

Thursday, April 18, 2019 - 7:00pm to 8:30pm
ScholarSpace Room 301
Rod Library, 1227 W 27th St, Cedar Falls, IA 50614, USA

Existing research on the process of refugee resettlement often downplays the wider everyday life in which these decisions are made. Often, we find that the face to face and daily interactions between refugees and the bureaucrats who make the resettlement decisions remain hidden from view. This presentation brings to light the complicated socio-political emotional exchanges of power and vulnerability that underlie the resettlement process by exploring one a set of interactions between refugees and migration officials. Co-sponsored with the Department of Sociology, Anthropology & Criminology and the Office of the President.

Panelists: Dr. Kamryn Warren (Sociology)
