Venue: Institute for Advanced Studies MR1 & 2
Mobilities, Migration, Service Work and Place
Date: 12 February 2010 Time: 09.00 for 9.30 - 16.30 Venue: Institute for Advanced Studies (IAS) MR 1 and 2
A free one day workshop hosted by the Centre for Mobilites Research (CeMoRe), Lancaster University
Exploring themes of multiculturalism, integration, cosmopolitanism, hospitality and labour process theory, in this innovative workshop we will examine the mobilities and lived experiences of migrant workers in Britain today. Focussing on the hospitality and care sectors, we will identify and develop key research strands in relation to contemporary migration and service work. At a time when evidently both the Prime Minister and British National Party consider that British jobs should be for British workers, the mobilities and motivations that enable or oblige travel to work in Britain will be explored, as will the outcomes and effects of labour mobilities on workplace practices, innovation and public and private sector policy. Drawing on current empirical projects, we will present rural and urban case studies, with a particular emphasis on migrant experiences in rural places.
The keynote speaker Sarah Neal, Dept of Social Policy and Criminology, Open University, will highlight key themes for the day.
The results from three current ESRC funded projects will be presented:
Artist, Diane Rickerby, will display her 'New Roots Projects' looking at the experiences of Lithuanian and Slovakian women living and working in Maryport, Cumbria
Current research on the care and hospitality labour process will be presented by Gemma Wibberley and Gareth Matthews, Sociology Dept, Lancaster University.
Discussants: Anne-Marie Fortier, Imogen Tyler and John Urry
This is an end of project workshop for the 'Global Welcome?' project funded by the ESRC [RES-000-22-3299] and the Centre for Mobilities Research.
The workshop is free to delegates and will take place from 9.30-16.30 on Friday 12th February 2010. The workshop will be preceded by dinner (not free!) in the Meeting House restaurant in Lancaster at 19.30 on Thursday 11th February.
