Conference - Coming home? Conflict and return migration in twentieth-century Europe

University of Southampton, UK, 1-3 April 2009

Coming home?

The question of return has long been thought to be central to an exilic discourse and yet relatively little is known about how return migration is actually experienced and subsequently remembered by exiles and also by migrants more widely. In order to mark the 70th anniversary of the ‘official’ end of the Spanish Civil War and the start of the Second World War, events which led to the mass displacement of refugees, speakers at this conference explored the broad theme of conflict and return migration in twentieth-century Europe.

The conference took place at the University of Southampton, 1-3 April 2009.
