As a reminder: on June 18th and 19th 2013 at Durham University (UK), a group of researchers, theorists and academics from universities across Europe came together to share critical studies and perspectives on the intersection between climate change, migration and race. The ‘workshop’ event was titled “Race, alterity and affect: rethinking climate change-induced migration and displacement”.
