We are thrilled to share the schedule for the reading group of Maya Goodfellow’s Hostile Environment: How immigrants became scapegoats .

This is the first of a series of reading circles, taking place offline-in real space and time-in Helsinki to collectively engage with selected reading matter on or from situated and discursive struggles that addresses the question of “What constitutes the ‘de-‘ in the process of decolonization within the context of Finland?” and challenge anti-immigration myths.

You are welcome to attend both the days, one of the days or in a format that suits you best. 

What else to expect : We may not be able to fully read the book together. 

We will have printouts of the book’s chapters.

We would like to know if you are coming so please put your name down in the list on Doc-Link.
