Organized by Södertörn University in connection with the publication of the anthology Refugee Genres: Essays on the Culture of Flight and Refuge (Palgrave Macmillan, 2022).
Distinguished participants from different disciplines provided perspectives to the
central focus of the anthology: bringing arts and humanities approaches to migration
studies. The roundtable participants contributed to the interdisciplinary conversations
on writing and media by and for refugees that has burgeoned in recent years. The book
contributors also touched on different media, histories of refugee migration, genres, and
forms, including life-writing and memoir, the graphic novel, film, and the literary novel.
Contributors included: Sukhdev Sandhu (New York University), Shahram Khosravi (CEMFOR,Uppsala University), René León Rosales (Mångkulturellt centrum), Torun Elsrud (Asylkommissionen), Christine Farhan (Södertörn University), Pramod Nayar (University of Hyderabad), Gorica Majstorovic (Stockton University), Szabolcs Musca (University of Bristol), Mona Becker (Martin-Luther-Universität Halle-Wittenberg), Graça Corrêa (University of Lisbon)
The event was organised by the co-editors of the anthology: Mike Classon Frangos (English department, Linnaeus University) and Sheila Ghose (English subject, Södertörn University)
