Southern Responses’ PI, Prof. Elena Fiddian-Qasmiyeh, will participate in the inaugural South-South Forum, Dartmouth College, New Hampshire, which will be held over 3 days from the 13th – 15th of August 2019.
This international and interdisciplinary workshop contributes to the aims of the South-South Forum to enable interdisciplinary discussions that ‘prioritize theoretical frameworks from the “South”‘. This is a theme that underpins the aims of the Southern Responses to Displacement project through the focus of our research, which identifies Southern-led responses to displacement, examines displaced people’s conceptualisations of these responses and aims to develop new conceptualisations of humanitarian history, theory and practice.
Contributing to the workshop roundtable themed ‘In-Between Spaces and Border Ecologies’, and drawing on recent field work conducted for the Southern Responses to Displacement research project in Baddawi Camp, Lebanon, Prof. Fiddian-Qasmiyeh will offer reflections on the heterogenous connections that exist between Baddawi and diverse peoples and places across what is often referred to as the Global South.
On Monday 12th August Prof. Fiddian-Qasmiyeh will also offer a plenary lecture at Dartmouth College, on past and present forms of Southern-led responses to displacement in and from the Middle East. Her lecture will focus on the Southern Responses to Displacement project’s ongoing research in Lebanon, Jordan and Turkey.
