Last week we hosted a group of academics and post graduate researchers working with young people on the themes of identity and politics.
We welcomed Professor Myria Georgiou from the London School of Economics, Dr Daniel Faas from Trinity College Dublin, Dr Caitriona Ni Laoire from University College Cork, Dr Anastasia Christou from Middlesex University, Dr Bahar Baser from Coventry University, Dr Ahmet Erdi Ozturk from Linköping University, Sweden (now at the London Metropolitan University) and Dr Elisabetta Zontini from The University of Nottingham.
During this 2-day workshop we presented some of our preliminary results and discussed working with children and young people more generally.
Liz is back at the Annual International Conference of the Royal Geographical Society. One year on, Liz will be presenting some of the preliminary findings of the research project. Find out more here: http://conference.rgs.org/AC2019/111
Liz is presenting today at the annual meeting of the American Association of Geographers in Washington, DC.
Elizabeth will be presenting the project at the next annual meeting of the American Association of Geographers (AAG) in April. AAG’s annual meeting is one of the largest geography conferences in the world, and Liz’s presentation will focus on the barriers and limitations that prevent young people from being politically active in diaspora.
Elizabeth presented a paper entitled ‘Learning to be political: a comparative case study of young people in the Greek, Palestinian and Jewish diasporas’ introducing the project at the Geographies of Education conference in Loughborough on 4th September 2018.
