Event description

Description

This academic year’s first Medical London Excursion for GHSM students and staff will take place on Wednesday 18th October 2017. We will be going on a tour of the Migration Museum Project, the UK’s first dedicated museum of migration.

Once a term, GHSM invites staff and students to explore the rich and unique medical and global health history of London through a visit to a place of interest. These visits also provide an excellent opportunity for students to meet across programmes and interact with staff outside of the department.

This excursion will start at 14:15 on Wednesday 18th October 2017. We will meet in the lobby of the Migration Museum Project, at The Workshop.

The Migration Museum Project tells stories of movement to and from Britain in fresh and engaging ways. The museum is currently at The Workshop, an exciting temporary arts and community space near Albert Embankment.

We will get a tour of the museum’s current exhibition ‘No Turning Back: Seven Migration Moments that Changed Britain.’ This exhibition explores seven turning points related to migration in Britain.

The museum says of these moments that ‘…some brought people together, others moved people apart; all had a profound effect on individuals who lived through them – and on the country as a whole. Each moment is explored thematically through a combination of art, photography and personal stories.’

After the trip, you can reflect on your experience either as an individual or in a group writing exercise, eligible for publication on the departmental blog: https://globalhealthandsocialmedicine.com

Please register through Eventbrite and feel free to email if you have any questions.

We look forward to seeing you!
