Throughout history forced mass movements of people have created heritage, at the time and retrospectively. Sites left behind are reused or fall into ruin, objects are taken on journeys, cultural practices are introduced into new environments. Later, return may be attempted in various way, through repatriation for instance. In this symposium we will explore the heritage of these displacements with a particular focus on the Mediterranean region from pre-history till today.

The conference will include an exhibition of “Another Day Lost and counting…” by Syrian artist Issam Kourbaj, the performance of Ladino songs by Jessica Marlow, and a lunch inspired by Mediterranean culinary heritage.

To register for the symposium please write to Minjae Zoh (mz369@cam.ac.uk)
