16th and 17th June. Workshop in Val di Susa: “Representing the Frontier”.

16th and 17th June. The workshop Representing the border: the wide space and long time of people on the move with Vincenza Pellegrino and Jacopo Anderlini from the University of Parma, the visual researcher Opher Thomson and the anthropologist Piero Gorza, will be held in Val di Susa the 16th and 17th of June.

The workshop is held within the framework of the Sociological-Legal Clinics Migrations and Frontiers, promoted by the University of Parma with the University of Naples “L’Orientale” and the collaboration of Ciac onlus, Italian Red Cross – Susa Committee, Diaconia Valdese, Mediterranea, Doctors Without Borders and Migrantour Parma.

These meetings are intended to encourage an open discussion on the possibility of representing the border in a different way, far from the feeling of emergency, helping to reflect both on the way in which each stage and each passage is preceded and followed by another one: on the fact that in each stage there are other passages and other migrations. The public events will be based on photographic materials and ethnographic notes collected over months of research in different Italian frontiers, across mountain and maritime spaces.

The initiative is open to all students. For registration, please write by the 13th June to: or Participation in these self-training events is free of charge. A certificate of participation can be requested.
