Public Lecture: Markian Prokopovych – Just Passing By?
The so-called 'Great Atlantic Migration' was a long process that included many stages within the European continent before the migrants could board the ships that would eventually transport some of them overseas. In particular, migrants from East Central Europe had to cross the entire continent first. This involved longer stays in cities en route that functioned as hubs in the railway and information networks. Their stay was short and transitory; however, they would become part of the complex system of institutions and individuals that both facilitated and controlled the migrant flow.
What was these migrants’ experience of the cities? Did the 'locals' assist them or, conversely, act on the authorities' behalf? By using case studies from the emerging research project, this talk aims to provide preliminary answers to these questions.
