IBEI with GRITIM-UPF (in the framework of the EUMedMig initiative) organize the Research Forum entitled: "Migrants, 'Coloniality of Power', and Temporal Frameworks".

It will be led by Ayse Caglar (University of Vienna and Institute for Human sciences, Austria).

This lecture addresses the racialized and racializing logics of knowledge production and governance that continue to inform the discursive construction of migrants in public discourses and scholarship. Building upon studies showing the “coloniality of power” as being fundamental to appropriations and the dispossessive processes underlying wealth generation, I argue for approaching both the de-valorization and re-valorization of migrants, namely their persecution, displacement and dispossession, as well as their prominence as cultural and religious assets within a common analytical lens. Such an approach however, not only requires a new analytical vocabulary beyond methodological nationalism, but also a radical rethinking of the temporal frameworks we use in studying migrants and their practices and subjectivities.
