About the group

Recent forced migration toward Europe have had a deep cognitive and emotional impact on the migrant subjects, shaping their economic situation and their individual and collective identity. It has even disrupted not only migrants’ own consciences, but also the way that national governments in Europe and worldwide have perceived what now is referred to in the media as the refugee crisis. The main influx of non-European migrants has being mainly through Greece and the Balkan countries, Libya and Italy, and the Spain’s African territories (Ceuta and Melilla) into Andalusia. 

The group first goal of study will be to stay focused on the field of the realities and cultural representations of both emigration and immigration and the economic, sociocultural and cognitive effects migration may have on migrants as well as on European citizens and national institutions. To the extent that it is relevant, the textual and cultural representations of both emigration and immigration in Europe and Scandinavia will be studied in relation to their historical and social background as well as from an interdisciplinary and an inter-national perspective.
