All Day LIFT Exhibition Series: Unobstructed Beauty (Multi-Day Event)

This year, the LIFT series features three female painters from the Waterloo Region: Lauren Judge, Marion R. Anderson, and Anne Filiatrault. Each artist shares a narrative that invites viewers to reflect on how we perceive and experience our surrounding environment.

The LIFT microgalleries are located on floors 4-6 of the Waterloo campus Library.

  • All Day Bordering Practices in Migration and Refugee Protection Workshop (Multi-Day Event)

    The international, interdisciplinary workshop, ‘Bordering Practices in Migration and Refugee Protection’, will be held at the Balsillie School of International Affairs (BSIA) in Waterloo on 8-10 November 2017. The Workshop is organized by Suzan Ilcan (University of Waterloo / BSIA), Kim Rygiel (Wilfrid Laurier University / BSIA), and Andrew Thompson (BSIA / CIGI). It received funding from a SSHRC Connection Grant, with additional support provided by the BSIA, University of Waterloo, and International Migration Research Centre.

    The Workshop seeks to examine contemporary bordering practices, their proliferation and their ability to exclude some groups while influencing the movements of other people facing violence, poverty, or instability. These bordering practices are diverse and include militarized border crossings, expanded border surveillance, and new security and policing measures that make life increasingly difficult for particular groups of people, such as migrants and refugee claimants crossing borders and those suspected of being undocumented. Such practices have culminated in increases in deaths--including those along the Spanish-African borders, the US-Mexico border, and the Aegean and Mediterranean Seas. They have also resulted in diverse forms of encampment and gradations of belonging and citizenship, and in gendered, racialized, and class-based migration movements. In reaction to these bordering practices, migrants, refugees, and advocates, along with diverse community groups and publics, have raised questions about how these practices produce exclusion, inequalities, and violence at and beyond the border. Thus, our orientation includes the varied ways in which certain migrants and refugees, migrant and refugee rights movements, and community initiatives understand, experience, and respond to bordering practices. Our analysis draws on policy, program, and historical documents, and ethnographic accounts of bordering practices in particular countries and places around the world. The main goal of the workshop is to contribute scholarly and policy-relevant knowledge at a time when the United Nations has called for high-level policy discussions (UN Global Compact) to strengthen international policy response in light of large-scale displacement and movement of peoples.

    There are three events associated with the workshop that are open to the broader university community and general public. If you are interested in attending, please email Suzan Ilcan suzan.ilcan@uwaterloo.ca and Angela Willmott awillmott@uwaterloo.ca
