Welcome to the Global Humanities Faculty Seminars: Understanding and Including Forced Migrants and Refugees: Responses from the Humanities.

Our Global Humanities Seminar showcased interdisciplinary work about forced migration and arts, narratives, identity, and language. It showed how a humanistic perspective into forced migration illuminated the social, moral, aesthetic, and linguistic experiences of refugees and migrants. The Seminar sought to galvanize campus-wide synergies among Georgetown students and scholars and plant the seeds for future collaborations that bring together humanities and language scholars at Georgetown with key practitioners and actors that support refugees and forced migrants in the Nation’s Capital.

This seminar series was sponsored by Georgetown University. We hosted three events in Fall 2022, the first one held on Georgetown campus and the second and third held remotely. We also hosted two virtual events in Spring 2023. The closing event was held on Georgetown campus in Fall 2023. You can find more information about each event and the invited speakers on the Events and Speakers tabs on top of the page.

Here is a snippet of our virtual events during Fall 2022 and Spring 2023:
