Interview with Óscar F. Gil-García

Interview with Óscar F. Gil-García (Running time: 23 minutes)

In this podcast Óscar F. Gil-García is in conversation with Sean Loughna. The photographic exhibition Guatemalan forced migration: the politics of care in representing refugees is a collaboration between photographer, Manuel Gil, and doctoral research student in Sociology, Óscar Gil. It explores the mechanisms of representation used for forced migrants that stage appropriate refugee identities to justify the need for humanitarian care. The exhibition explores these issues through photo-documentary work with indigenous Guatemalan forced migrants living in the former refugee camp of La Gloria in the state of Chiapas in Mexico. The photos and details about their findings and perspectives can also be viewed on Forced Migration Online.
