Dr Alice Elliot (Department of Anthropology, Goldsmiths, University of London)

What does migration look like, when it comes to permeate daily actions, thoughts, and routines? Drawing on ethnographic fieldwork in Morocco, a country with over 10% of its population living abroad, this series of lectures traces the distinctive conceptual and intimate textures migration acquires in the places where it originates. Interrogating dominant understandings of migration and their deadly consequences, the lectures set out to recast migration as a form of life, where at stake are the very building-blocks of existence – what it is to be a man or woman, what has significance and what is meaningless, notions of humanity and its loss.
