Funded by the University of California Office of the President (UCOP), the Critical Refugee Studies Collective is a four-year initiative (2017-2020) that seeks to make the University of California the premier institution for critical research, teaching, and public initiatives on refugees. The CRSC promotes and funds innovative projects that trace the impact of colonialism, imperialism, and militarization on refugee movements and that integrates scholarly, policy, and artistic interests with refugees’ everyday concerns.

  • Read: Refugee Re/Enactment
    Performance and panel discussion centered on exploring the condition of displacement and displaced peoples, with refugees as a launching point, seeking to build critical discourse that makes use of memory, stories of lived experiences, and fictional acts to make sense of histories and experiences of people who have been forced to leave their homelands or countries because of war, persecution, and global violence.
