Annual OMSS Conference: Spaces of (Im)mobility

May 31 @ 9:30 am - June 1 @ 5:00 pm

- £10

“The Oxford Migration Studies Society (OMSS) is a University Society that aims to connect people in Oxford examining any facet of migration. Society members include students and researchers from the Centre on Migration, Policy and Society (COMPAS), the Refugee Studies Centre (RSC), and other specialists in  a range of disciplines, including anthropology, politics, history, geography, and sociology.

This collaborative conference aims to bring together multiple disciplinary perspectives to explore how human mobility is mediated from above and below. It will examine how physical and social infrastructures operating within and across localities permit, facilitate and inhibit human mobility, and ask how individuals respond to these design and plans “from above”. In doing so we hope to reflect upon important social processes and enquire how human mobility fits into these processes.

We are doing our best to make this conference as accessible as possible. Our venue is wheelchair accessible and we are happy to provide other accommodation UPON REQUEST, so please make sure to indicate such requirement in the registration!

Registration CLOSES Wednesday, May 29th. Secure your tickets before they sell out! Lunch, coffee and refreshments are provided for both days.

If you would like to buy a ticket after the closing date, please message rebecca.wong@sant.ox.ac.uk .
