Amcan

Gellir crynhoi’r ddegawd ddiwethaf fel oes gynhyrfus. Sylwyd ar lymder, gwleidyddiaeth popiwlistaidd, a hinsawdd gynyddol atgas ac estrongas ar draws Ewrop, gogledd America, a thu hwnt. Cynhyrfwyd y politicau hyn normau a disgwyliadau hegemonaidd gynt yn yr arena wleidyddol, gan godi goblygiadau ar gyfer mudwyr rhyngwladol, sy’n gweld eu bywydau’n dod yn gynyddol heriol a’u dyfodol yn fwyfwy ansicr. Targedwyd, er enghraifft, mudwyr, eu teuluoedd, myfyrwyr rhyngwladol, ymofynwyr lloches, a ffoaduriaid, gan osod cyfrifoldebau ac amodau ychwanegol arnynt gan gyfyngu ar eu hawliau. At hyn, tystia dychweliad preswylwyr hirdymor a diddymu dinasyddiaeth y graddau y gall ‘statysau a gymerwyd yn ganiataol’ gael eu newid. Cwestiyna’r arferion hyn y graddau gall preswyliaeth (‘denizenship’) – yr hawliau i breswylwyr nad ydynt yn ddinasyddion – barhau i fod yn gysyniad ystyrlon, ynghyd a phwysleisio’r goblygiadau ar gyfer hyrwyddo cymdeithas gydlynol, gynhwysfawr, ac amrywiol.

Mae'r trefnwyr yn gwahodd cyfraniadau ar hyd nifer o themâu a meysydd, gan gynnwys:

  • Mudo a bregusrwydd
  • Negodi ansicrwydd ac atgasedd
  • Perthyn, angori, a hunaniaeth
  • Cymdeithas sifil ac ymatebion cymunedol
  • Integreiddio mewn cymunedau letyol
  • Trosedd casineb, cydlynu, a chyfarfyddiadau siriol
  • Ffoaduriaid ac ymofynwyr lloches
  • Dinasyddiaeth a phreswyliaeth
  • Sefydliadau, gwyliadwriaeth ac amrywiaeth
  • Cynnwrf croestoriadol
  • Gobaith
  • Myfyrdodau methodolegol a moesegol ar astudio cynnwrf

Symposium: An Unsettled status? Migration in a turbulent age

Tuesday 2 July 2019

Medrus Conference Centre, Aberystwyth University

 

This one-day symposium aims to cover and discuss a range of issues related to migration.

 

Keynote speaker, Dr Kathy Burrell (University of Liverpool) will present her research on 'Unsettling Freedom of Movement? Hostile Environments, Conditionality, and the Experiences of Polish migrants on the Eve of Brexit'

 

Call for papers

The last decade can be characterised as representing a turbulent age.  Austerity, populist politics, and an increasing climate of hostility and xenophobia have been observed across Europe, North America, and elsewhere.  These politics have unsettled previously hegemonic norms and expectations in the political arena, as well as having implications for international migrants, whose lives may have become increasingly challenging and their futures more uncertain.  For example, hostile rhetoric and policies have targeted migrants, their families, international students, asylum seekers, and refugees, placing additional responsibilities and conditions on them, and limiting their rights.  Furthermore, the repatriation of long-standing residents and the removal of citizenship demonstrates the extent that “taken-for-granted statuses” can be subject to change.  These practices question the extent to which ‘denizenship’ – the rights afforded to non-citizen residents – continues to be a meaningful concept, as well as highlighting the implications for promoting a cohesive, inclusive and diverse society

 

 The organizers invite contributions along a number of themes and areas, including: 

 

  • Migration and precarity
  • Negotiating uncertainty and hostility
  • Belonging, anchoring, and identity
  • Civil society and community responses
  • Integration into host communities
  • Hate crimes, cohesion, and convivial encounters
  • Refugees and asylum seekers
  • Citizenship and denizenship
  • Institutions, surveillance and diversity
  • Intersectional turbulence
  • Hope
  • Methodological and ethical reflections on studying turbulence

 

Abstract submission

A maximum of a 250 words abstract, free text, should be submitted to Rhys Dafydd Jones Aberystwyth University by 1 June 2019

 

This is a free event. 

Bursaries

There are a number of bursaries available, up to £50.00, for postgraduate and unsalaried. Please email Rhys Dafydd Jones for further information. 

Dinner at Medina restaurant, 19:30.  Guests to pay for their own meals (rather than a set price).  Menu and information available here
