Ferroconcrete Cases, Sausage Migrants, and Santa Barbara

Descriptive Text: 

On Tuesday, October 11, 2017, Anastasiya Astapova (University of Tartu) gave a lecture entitled "Ferroconcrete Cases, Sausage Migrants, and Santa Barbara: Self-Reflexive Metaphors among Russian-Speaking Refugees and Asylum-Seekers in Estonia."

"Drawing upon the results of extensive fieldwork, this talk will survey the refugee situation in Estonia and its public perception, focusing in particular on Russophone refugees and asylum seekers from post-Soviet countries and exploring the self-reflexive metaphors they employ to classify themselves and their peers as deserving or undeserving and thereby codify the asylum-seeking process with familiar categories."
