How great to have my piece included in this very timely special issue of the open access journal of the Media, Communication, and Cultural Studies Association. The theme is Fortress Europe: Media, Migration and Borders, and it presents a range of case studies on the media coverage of the so-called “refugee crisis” in Europe. It highlights how Europe and the violence that its borders inflict upon bodies comes to produce refugees as “other,” and explores the role of various (digital) media representations in consolidating or challenging the dominant tropes around the figures of the migrant, refugee, and asylum seeker.

On March 8th, originally known as International Working Women’s Day (and still known as International Women’s Day) I started my new job as Postodc researcher at Utrecht University. Pretty fitting! For the coming 4 years I’ll be working on the ERC funded project, ‘Digital Crossings in Europe: Gender, Diaspora and Belonging,’ (aka the Connecting Europe project).
