    Barcelona

    While migration often poses the question of cultural difference, diverse forms of media play a key role in enabling representation, thus forging modes of communication. Through a focus on the role of media, this conference will explore the extent to which the latter bridges cultural differences in contexts of migration and facilitates intercultural dialogue.

    Keynote speakers will be Iain Chambers (Professor of Cultural and Postcolonial Studies, Oriental University of Naples, Italy) and Kevin Robins (Professor of Sociology, City University, London, UK).

    Two events will follow the conference, in which participants are welcome to take part:

    • a roundtable discussion with Immigrant Press Journalists in Barcelona, organized in collaboration with Casa Asia (November 25) and 
    • a training workshop on PhD research methods, organized in collaboration with CIDOB (November 27).
