Sexual humanitarianism: Migration, sex work and trafficking

The Centre for Research on Communities, Identities and Difference (CResCID), at the School of Social and Behavioural Sciences, Kingston University would like to invite you to the launch of the SEXHUM: migration, sex work and trafficking project, which is funded by the European Research Council (ERC).

Between October 2016 and September 2020 SEXHUM will adopt an innovative and multidisciplinary methodology including long term participant observation, qualitative interviewing and participative ethnographic filmmaking to study the relation between migration, sex work and trafficking in Australia, France, New Zealand and the US. You can find more information about SEXHUM on its website.

The event will include a presentation by Prof Nicola Mai, SEXHUM's Principal Investigator, and the UK première screening of his new documentary ethnofiction Travel (63min), which examines the experiences of migration, sex work and trafficking of Nigerian women selling sex in Paris.
