Lande: The Calais 'Jungle' and Beyond | Events during May 2019
On Friday 17 May 2019, Maria Hagan (Cambridge University) will give a talk, "Our Shelter is in Shreds": Deterrence, Destruction and Dispossession at the Post-Camp Calais Border, as part of the Lande: The Calais 'Jungle' and Beyond exhibition.
Lande is a major new temporary exhibition about the material and visual culture of the Calais "Jungle". It opens at Oxford's Pitt Rivers Museum on Saturday 27 April and runs to 29 November 2019. Entry to the exhibit is free, but donations to Help Refugees are encouraged (secure contactless giving is installed in the exhibition). The Pitt Rivers shop is exclusively selling a paperback edition of the new book that accompanies the exhibition at the special price of £14.99 (Bristol University Press). All royalties from the book are being donated to L'Auberge des Migrants. You can keep up to date with the events programme for the exhibition through our Twitter feed @LANDE_OX. Lande is co-curated by Majid Adin, Shaista Aziz, Caroline Gregory, Dan Hicks, Sarah Mallet, Nour Munawar, Sue Partridge, Noah Salibo and Wshear Wali.
