Mary Bosworth is part of an interdisciplinary team from the Universities of Oxford, York, Birmingham, Lancaster and Exeter who have been granted funds from the ESRC to hold a seminar series entitled 'Exploring Everyday Practice and Resistance in Immigration Detention'. This seminar series brings together scholars spanning the disciplines of criminology, politics, sociology and geography across five events during 2012-2014. These events will provide a means of networking between academics, practitioners, and those who have experienced detention, in order to exchange expertise and knowledge around the operation and implications of immigration detention in a national and international context. The seminar series is coordinated by Dr Nick Gill of Exeter University's Geography Department and will involve international speakers from Canada, America, Finland and Australia. The Oxford event on experiences of detention is provisionally scheduled for autumn 2014.
