This three-year transdisciplinary project brings together five parallel subprojects mapping night spaces in eight cities in the Netherlands, Ireland, UK, Germany, Denmark and Portugal, considered intersectionally within the context of migration with questions of race and ethnicity, gender and sexuality, class, and age.
The UCL team, led by Prof. Ben Campkin, will focus on LGBT+ migrant communities and night spaces in London.
The Leuphana University team (in conjunction with Humboldt), led by Prof. Manuela Bojadzijev, will study migrant bike couriers at night within Berlin’s smart economy.
At Aarhus University , Dr. Derek Pardue will lead comparative research on migrant youth and questions of belonging, surveillance and policing with Lisbon.
At the University of Limerick, the team led by Dr Ailbhe Kenny will study African migrants’ community music making in Cork and Galway.
At Leiden University, Project Leader Dr. Brandellero will collaborate with Dr Kamila Krakowska (LUCAS) and Prof. Frans-Willem Korsten (LUCAS) to research migrant night cultures in Amsterdam and Rotterdam.
The NITE team looks forward to the 20-22 May 2019 kick-off meeting, generously supported by the renowned Institute for Advanced Study Hanse-Wissenschaftskolleg (HWK) in Delmenhorst, one of NITE’s Associate Partners.
