Zapraszamy Państwa na spotkanie z prof. Russellem Kingiem z University of Sussex na wykład, który wygłoszony zostanie w ramach spotkań "Wyzwania Humanistyki XXI. wieku". Podczas wykładu omówiona zostanie sytuacja, w jakiej znaleźli się migranci z Polski, Rumunii czy Irlandii, którzy przenieśli się do Anglii, a których sytuacja uległa zmianie po ogłoszeniu przez nią wyjścia z Unii Europejskiej.

Wykład będzie prowadzony w języku angielskim. Wstęp wolny.

Wyzwania humanistyki XXI wieku to cykl wykładów prowadzonych przez wybitnych specjalistów z rożnych dziedzin mających związek z szeroko pojętą humanistyką. Prelekcje są organizowane głównie z myślą o uczestnikach Interdyscyplinarnych Studiów Doktoranckich Uniwersytetu SWPS, jednakże mają formę otwartych spotkań, dostępnych dla wszystkich zainteresowanych. Po wykładzie doktoranci zasiadają z zaproszonymi gośćmi przy wspólnym stole. Nieformalna atmosfera sprzyja nieskrępowanej dyskusji oraz nawiązywaniu bezpośrednich kontaktów, które mogą w przyszłości zaowocować stażami naszych doktorantów w zagranicznych ośrodkach naukowych.

The unexpected result of the Brexit referendum has left hundreds of migrants, who have been contributing to the British economy, in limbo. For these young people from Ireland, Italy, Poland, Romania and other European countries “should I stay or should I go” is no longer just a song by Clash, but a real dilemma. In his lecture on “Brexit and Mobility: Between Connection, Disruption and Affect”, Professor Russell King from the University of Sussex will talk about the challenges these young migrants are currently facing.

The lecture, organized by the Interdisciplinary Doctoral Program at SWPS University, is part of the series The Challenges of the Humanities of the 21st Century.

The lecture will be conducted in English. Free admission.
