We were delighted to bring our MMB members together for our online AGM on 3rd November. After such a long time without an informal group event it was a pleasure to see so many of you!
We started with MMB Director Bridget Anderson presenting our Annual Report and then divided into break-out rooms to discuss three questions:
- What’s the best thing you have read/seen in the past year relevant to MMB?
- Can you find a common research area/topic/question in the field of migration and mobility that you think should be prioritised?
- What recommendation(s) would you give to MMB to help sustain our MMB community during COVID?
Members uploaded many of their answers to Padlets – a great visual way to document the discussion. You can see the results below.
In particular, there are lots of interesting and very varied suggestions for books and articles to read and films and exhibitions to see. We will be using some of these ideas again for our Christmas online gathering on 11th December, so hope you feel inspired by these to take part then!
