Migration, Displacement and Global Identities

The staff in this cluster are interested in the changing nature and experience of societies, under conditions of globalisation.  In a global world, the local is also impacted by global processes, whilst physical movement, change, reconfiguration of global place, space and identities is a common hallmark of global life. The wide scope of this cluster includes issues around those who elect to move and migrate for a better life, for work and so forth but also those who are displaced by such issues as circumstance, war and violence.
