Storytelling for Refuge/Storytelling as Refuge symposium: Call for Papers

Posted on November 14, 2017

We are delighted to announce that the George Ewart Evans Centre for Storytelling will present a two-day symposium on the theme of ‘Storytelling for Refuge/Storytelling as Refuge’. Following on from our two most recent symposia, looking at themes of justice and place respectively, this year’s symposium explores an important cross section of these themes: storytelling as a means of creating awareness of refugee and migrant issues, as well as its ability to provide moments of refuge in the midst of chaotic events. In a world where migration and refugees are constant talking points in political and cultural spheres, story and storytelling take on crucial roles in crafting and shaping narratives around migration and refuge. But story can also act as refuge; as a sanctuary for the lost, for the wanderer, and those who seek spaces of literal or metaphorical peace.
