Sally awarded Frank Carter Postgraduate Prize
Research in Patras refugee camp
The Sixth Frank Carter Postgraduate Prize was awarded in 2011 to Sally Hole for her MSc (Global Migration) dissertation entitled How does the movement of migration journey through the European border regime? Exploring the ‘becomings’ of irregularity, transit space and political subjectivity in Patras, Greece.”
The project was impressive for its theoretical sophistication and its unique empirical substance, having been researched in the difficult circumstances of a makeshift refugee camp in Patras.
The annual prizes are awarded in memory of Professor Frank Carter (1938-2001), who taught the human geography of east-central Europe in UCL Geography and at SSEES. His many publications included work on migration in Greece, so that he would have found Sally’s study of particularly interest.
The next Frank Carter Lecture will be delivered by Professor Adrian Smith (Queen Mary) on Thursday 9 February 2012 at 5.30 pm in the UCL, Harrie Massey Lecture Theatre, 25 Gordon Street.
Professor Smith’s title will be From the Berlin Wall to the Siidi Bouzid (Tunisia) Revolt : Two Decades of Neo-Liberalism and Uneven Development on the EU’s Borders.
All are welcome to this event.
