After yet another spell of the British press and politicians using very dehumanising and derogatory rhetoric about migrants, I felt it necessary to go back to the Away Team episode of the Allusionist, about the language of migration, with lecturer and researcher Emma Briant, and author and editor Nikesh Shukla. This episode originally went out in early 2017, but it is never not relevant.
And there’s a chunk of new material in the Minillusionist, so stick around right till the end to hear that.
Find out more about this episode at theallusionist.org/migration2020.
