This year’s theme is The Arts of Integrating: Labouring and Resting

The Spring School showcases the ways in which individuals, communities, societies and institutions have accommodated and hosted each other and reflect on the ways in which the arts and academic research offer insights into the processes of welcome and integration. Interpreted in the broadest sense, these themes range from how we engage with our neighbours to topics such as slavery and imperialism and their connection to the present. In particular, the Spring School will focus on artistic, multilingual and educational dimensions.

1) Labouring and Resting in integrational settings

  1. Work, places and patterns of work and provision of care
  2. Holidays, tourism, family setting and cultural institutions
  3. Digital facilitation of integration through work and rest

2) Creating shared culture

  1. What is culture?
  2. Festivals, celebrating culture, breaking bread together
  3. Language learning, teaching and translanguaging, language evolution

3) Caged birds’ songs

  1. Labouring, resisting and resting in captivity
  2. Languages and emotions of the forced non-migratory
