“What is a Refugee Crisis?” March 11, 2016
Cogut Center for the Humanities, Brown University

This year, events in the Middle East, Africa and Europe have led to popular movements that have been described as the largest refugee crisis since WWII. This demands a response, and how this crisis is defined, mediated, and understood is central to the responses (global and local, personal and political, affective and activist) that can be generated. This day-long symposium, along with an accompanying visual archive, considers the question of “what is a refugee crisis?” focused on media combined with political theory.

The attack, which the police chief described as involving the highest number of people wounded in a single incident in the city’s history, occurred on the evening of June 30, 2018. The motive was not yet clear, but the police chief said it appeared the attacker struck without provocation, and police were not aware of any tie between the suspect and victims.

“Tonight we did have a tragedy occur,” Chief William Bones said in a news conference. The mass stabbing occurred at Wylie Street Station Apartments. The suspect’s name was not yet released. The victims’ identities and nationalities were also not disclosed.

“I would ask for our community’s hearts to go out as I know they will and for their prayers for the families of everybody that’s involved here,” Bones said.
