IR and aesthetics. Aston Centre for Europe

CCISC members Dr Amanda Beattie and Dr Jelena Obradovic-Wochnik are working on this field research project, funded by CCISC’s sister centre the Aston Centre for Europe (ACE). The project (which also involves Aston Politics and International Relations academic Dr Patrycja Rozbicka and Dr Gemma Bird of the University of Liverpool) investigates stories of migration and the refugee crisis in Serbia, Macedonia, and Greece from an inter-disciplinary perspective, focusing on (1) political expression in marginalised communities through use of graffiti and music, (2) use of technology and social networks, (3) everyday geographies of the refugee crisis, and (4) migration and trauma, and children in IR.
