Panel ECAS 2019: 13 June 2019, 8:45-10:15 AM
Abstract: The urgent, temporary and seemingly ahistorical character of refugee camps overshadows the history of the camps as a means of caring for and controlling mobile people. In this panel, the history of the camp of refugees and others in colonial and post-colonial Africa will be questioned.
