The Athens-Paris-London Project Tackles Forced Migration

Dr Amit Rai (Senior Lecturer in Creative Industries and Arts Organisation)
In this informal talk, Amit Rai will be talking about a collaborative project he has been involved in with Project Phakama. The Athens-Paris-London (A-P-L) is a transnational research project for engaging with refugee communities through creative action. This is a collaborative project between Phakama at QMUL, the Melissa Network and Open Schools Programme in Athens and the University of London in Paris. Since 2017, there have been 3 knowledge exchange trips to Athens and Paris where Phakama brought members of their youth board, board and Associate Artists to meet with partners and refugees.

The effects of mothers' stress during pregnancy 

Dr Kristin Hadfield (Lecturer in Positive Psychology)
Effects of the maternal environment can become biologically embedded to affect foetal health, with mothers’ stress during pregnancy leading to changes in children’s later emotional and behavioural development. However, some children born to mothers who experience significant prenatal stress nevertheless thrive. In this talk, I will discuss 1) the social and biological risk factors for experiencing stress, 2) how these experiences impact children’s development, and 3) the potential factors and processes related to resilience of children in the pre- and post-natal environment.
