Barcelona as a City of Migrants

[forwarded from Isabelle Anguelovski, Director of the Barcelona Lab for Urban Environmental Justice and Sustainability]:

Dear colleagues,

I wanted to share a recent web documentary coordinated and produced by a colleague/friend filmmaker & sociologist, Alberto Bougleux, on Barcelona as a City of Migrants (La Ciudad Migrante). In addition to being an interactive visual platform of many (younger and older) migrant lives and a visual path through photographic installations in the city, it also contains an interactive map of solidarity resources in Barcelona. Have a look at it, it’s a really fascinating project: http://ciudadmigrante.org. The project was supported by the Ajuntament de Barcelona, the Museu d’Historià de la Immigració de Catalunya, and the Mescladis foundation. I’m copying Alberto in this note in case you have any questions or comments!

As researchers, web and interactive documentaries are also a fantastic way to share one’s research (especially in Sociology and Geography) and make it closer to diverse public and audiences. It’s really creative and meaningful at the same time.

I hope you enjoy it and share it around you!

Cheers,
