Public Lecture | Social Transformation and Human Mobility: Reflections on the Past, Present and Future of Migration

16 March 2017

Recently Professor Stephen Castles retired from his academic appointment at the University of Sydney. Professor Castles has been, and continues to be, a key international scholar in the field of migration and mobility. His work across the decades has been central to scholarship on transnationalism, identity, diaspora and people movement, both locally and internationally.
He has been instrumental, through publication and his supervision of dozens of PhD students in many of the quintessential theoretical and policy initiatives focused on social justice and migration.

Stephen’s retirement takes place at a critical moment in our history. We live in a decade when there more people on the move than has been the case for many decades. In this lecture Professor Castles will draw on his ideas he has developed across his career, ideas about migration and change, racism and society, as well as globalism and precarity, in order to help make sense of the current events, but also to propose new ideas about the future of human mobility.

The lecture is open to all, but registration is required. The venue will be accessible to any participants with a disability. However, if you have a particular need please let us know.

 

There is ALSO a one-day symposium in honour of Professor Castles on 17 March 2017. If you would like to Register for this Symposium, please click the link here.
