‘Living on the Margins’ Exhibition Launch Event

‘Living on the Margins’ Exhibition Launch Event

21 February 2019 | Bath | 19:30 – 21:30 

Join us for a presentation and drinks reception to launch the ‘Living on the Margins’ Exhibition, exploring the role of brokers in post-conflict borderlands.

This evening event launches the Living on the Margins exhibition which incorporates images and films from a range of research projects conducted by academics at the Centre for Development Studies (CDS), University of Bath. These projects explore themes relating to conflict, reconciliation and livelihoods in the aftermath of war in Sierra Leone, Cambodia and other contexts.

The focal point of the exhibition will be an illustrated essay produced by University of Bath researchers (in collaboration with PositiveNegatives and SOAS), which explores the role of borderlands brokers in post-war Sri Lanka and Nepal. The narrative follows the lives of four individuals who have represented or mediated the interests of borderland communities during and in the aftermath of war. The exhibition will be open to the public for a week from Monday 18 to Sunday 24 February 2019.

This event will begin with a short talk by Dr Oliver Walton (University of Bath) and Professor Jonathan Goodhand (SOAS) about the Living on the Margins project, followed by a Q&A and drinks reception, during which you will have a chance to explore the exhibition in your own time.
