This seminar is devoted to Flyktingdokumentation (Refugee Documentation) project – an ongoing collaboration between Regionmuseet Kristianstad, Malmö Museums, Kulturen in Lund, and ALM (Archive, Library and Museum) programme at the Department of Arts and Cultural Sciences at 

Lund University. It documented the reception of refugees in Skåne in 2015, with a long-term goal of creating a large national touring exhibition, organizing a scientific conference, and producing a documentary film. Several lines of current research within the project will be presented in the seminar, the ideas for further scientific uses of the collected material, as well as the plans for situating a new project at GPS, related to Flyktingdokumentation.
