Seminar series lecture: "Doing Migration Studies with an Accent" by Shahram Khosravi

Public lecture at CEU
Tuesday, March 8, 2022, 5:30 pm – 7:00 pm

This talk is not about accent. Neither it is on migration studies as such. Rather this talk aims to explore the potentiality of ‘accent as method’ in formation of knowledge in the field of migration studies. I approach accent both as a method of knowing and as a form of struggle. 

Shahram Khosravi is a former taxi driver and currently an accidental Professor of Anthropology at Stockholm University. Khosravi is the author of some academic books and some articles but he prefers to write stories. He has been an active writer in the international press. He just published an art book on Waiting and two years ago he started Critical Border Studies, a network for scholars, artists and activists to interact.
