This Thursday (17th January), Research Engagement Officer Ross MacFarlane will be participating in the first of a new series of events organised by the Migration Museum Project.
What do migrants bring to our shores? In their new Great Minds series, the Migration Museum Project and the Council for Assisting Refugee Academics (CARA) will be exploring some of the hugely significant contributions which people from migrant backgrounds have made to the intellectual life of the UK. Join us as we launch the series with an evening of talks on the theme of medicine, discussing the Paralympics, psychology and pharmaceuticals.
