Tid: 2016-05-25 08:00 -- 2016-05-26 17:00
Plats: Orkanen building, D 138
Målgrupp: Open to all

This conference seeks to lay the scientific groundwork for the ways in which a museum of migration in Malmö, through a democratic approach, could represent issues of migration, reach out to new audiences, find ways of collaborating with civil society, and be a promoter of social change.

Opening speech 
The conference will be opened by the Swedish Minister of Culture and Democracy, Alice Bah Kuhnke. The programme includes many distinguished speakers from both academia and the museum sector.

Keynote speaker

Peggy Levitt is Professor and Chair of the Sociology Department at Wellesley College and Co-Director of Harvard University’s Transnational Studies Initiative. Her new book, Artifacts and Allegiances: How Museums Put the Nation and the World on Display, was published by the University of California Press in July 2015. In her talk, she explores how museums around the world are making sense of immigration and globalisation.
