The Summer School “Cultures, Migrations, Borders”of the Department of Social Anthropology and History of the University of the Aegean, in collaboration with the “Observatory of Refugee and Migration Crisis in the Aegean” and the co-sponsorship of the “Global Studies Center”, University of Pittsburgh and the “Center for European and Russian Studies”, UCLA, will host a virtual two-day workshop on Migrations and Borders in the Age of the Pandemic. The workshop will take place on 20-21 November 2020.

The first day will be a reflexive, self critical appraisal of the long term experience of teaching and attending the Summer School on Lesvos, an island that occupies an emblematic place in the migration/border regime over the last few years. The panel will be addressed to ex-students and lecturers.

The panels on the second day will be open to the general public and will discuss how the present health crisis offers an opportunity to critically assess the exclusionary potential of bordering against the pandemic, while rethinking the dominant (im)mobility regime.
