Welcome, Cohort 2012-2014!

To put it dramatically: A new chapter in EMMIR history begins!

While the first cohort is spread out all over the globe during their third semester, the second EMMIR cohort has arrived in Oldenburg to start their journey.
To welcome them properly, us guinea pigs recorded a little welcome message for our new colleagues.

Good to have you, we can’t wait to meet you in December.

Migration in the Movies

Last week, we had our first event in our series “Migration in the Movies”. Our screening of “For a Moment, Freedom” was attended by both EMMIR students and other students and friends from Stavanger.

This week’s film will be: “Va, Vis et Deviens – Live and Become” (2005) by Radu Mihăileanu.
The film follows a Christian Ethopian boy who disguises himself as an Ethopian Jew of the Beta Israel in order to escape the famine and draught in Ethopia. It follows his life in Israel after he is airlifted to Israel as part of the Operation Moses (Mivtza Moshe) in 1984.

You can find the trailer here:

Migration in the Movies

We’re really excited to announce a new EMMIR event: “Migration in the Movies”:

Fancy watching a movie about migration, integration, refugees, displacement, diaspora, … ?

Fancy having a chat about it afterwards?

Good times. The EMMIR students invite you to a series of movie screenings and discussions. There’ll even be snacks and refreshments.
The screenings will happen every Thursday at 7pm in Room KA-051.

We will try to show a variety of films from across the globe and look at the different ways in which migration, migrant, refugees and the like are represented on the big screen.

If you’re in Stavanger, please join us on March 1, 2012 at 7pm in Room KA-051 (Kjell Arholm Hus) and join the facebook group or the facebook event for this week’s screening of “For a Moment, Freedom”.
