Migration, Displacement and Diversity: The IRiS Anthology marks the tenth anniversary of the University of Birmingham’s Institute for Research into Superdiversity (IRiS). Together with more than 70 contributors – academics, practitioners and activists - we think collectively about past, present and future directions of research on migration and diversity. The contributions cover a range of disciplines and professions, work on different aspects, spaces and times of the migration phenomenon, and express a variety of scientific and political approaches.

The event will run in hybrid format. Participation both in person and via Zoom will be possible.
