Welcome to Back to eMigrating Landscapes

The eMigrating Landscapes Project started in 2012 aiming to conceptualize and present various cultural, literary and artistic perspectives on emigration, migration and displacement of border crossings.

It is also an online platform for seminars on contemporary emigration and its literary and artistic representations.

The site died in 2018. With migration and immigration being the preeminent issue of the 21st century, and as part of our project in restoring and preserving these Internet resources for migration and immigration, we are restoring the site. We will then add additional content to support the site’s theme and concept.

If you want to get in touch with us, please do.
