The Center for Jewish Studies requests $ 10,000 to finance a conference on the Refugee in the Postwar World, and a book of essays. The project will offer innovative, global, and interdisciplinary perspectives on the causes, consequences, and contemporary interpretations of population upheavals in Europe, South Asia, and the Middle East after WWII. The project will examine the link between refugees and the formation of nation-states; the responses of the international community to refugee crises; the techniques of managing refugee populations; the refugees attempts to make sense of their dislocation, and the representation of refuges problem in the media.
|Effective start/end date||3/9/10 → 4/30/11|
