New Dhaba display: Protestimony

ProtestimonyProtestimony is an exhibition that aims to communicate an alternative narrative about the “refugee crisis” to a diverse audience in the UK and France. Protestimony challenges the dehumanising and depoliticising anti-refugee and migrant rhetoric of mainstream media using artworks created by refugees and volunteers who lived in the Calais Jungle.

Protestimony is on display in the Dhaba, the Resource Centre (Arts C175) and in the ground floor corridor of Arts C.

Global Horizons
New inter-disciplinary journal produced by Global Studies students at Sussex

Global HorizonsThis journal is a space of representation and recognition, demonstrating to students and non-students alike the exemplar works that are produced by undergraduate Global Studies students at the University of Sussex. The journal is inter-disciplinary by the nature of its diverse contributors, reflecting the pedagogical and methodological approach the School of Global Studies adopts more generally. Through compiling papers that deal with pressing global issues in such a way, we seek to generate and disseminate knowledge and understanding that can make a difference, for a fairer, safer, more sustainable and more inclusive world.
