GRAMNet, Glasgow Refugee, Asylum and Migration Network, are hosting two events in January as part of their seminar series and film series.
Gramnet Seminar Series - Lights In The Distance: Reporting Europe's Refugee Crisis
Daniel Trilling is a journalist who writes about migration, nationalism and border. His latest book draws from his own family's history of displacement, visits to detention camps and hostels to tell the realities of those who usually only are referred to as economic migrant, refugee, or illegal.
Wednesday 23 January, 3.30 - 4.30pm (Tea/coffee and home baking will be served from 3.00pm in the Atrium)
Fore Hall, Main Building, University of Glasgow
For more information about the event, and how to sign up, please see their website.
Gramnet Film Series - The Dead Nation
The Dead Nation is a documentary-essay by Radu Jude, which shows a collection of photographs from a Romanian small town in the 1930's and 1940's. The soundtrack, composed mostly from excerpts taken from the diary of a Jewish doctor from the same era, shows us what the photographs do not: the rising of the anti-Semitism and eventually a harrowing depiction of the Romanian Holocaust, a topic which is not very talked about in the contemporary Romanian society.
Wednesday 23 January, 5.45pm doors for 6.00pm start
Centre for Contemporary Arts (CCA), 350 Sauchiehall Street, Glasgow G2 3JD
