This session brings together teachers and researchers from the School of Arts for three public talks on human migration, ranging from early nineteenth-century poetry to mid-twentieth century novels to the contemporary English language classroom.

Pam Rogerson-Revell, Associate Professor in Applied Linguistics, will speak about her British Council-funded research project, conducted with Aleks Palanac, entitled ‘Resilience and beyond: facilitating learning and well-being in the refugee language classroom’

Philip Shaw, Professor of Romantic Studies, will explore the representation of displaced victims of war in William Wordsworth’s poetry

Victoria Stewart, Reader in Modern and Contemporary Literature, will will discuss the representation of refugee academics in British detective fiction of the 1940s and 1950s.

This is organised as part of the University of Leicester's Refugee Week - Breaking Barriers.
