Abstract
"This exhibition examines stories of forced migration in the history of Queen's University and within the Queen's community. It reflects the diverse trajectories of those who sought refuge. Some found sanctuary at Queen's and Kingston became their new home. Others found safety at the University for only a short time, migrating elsewhere when the opportunity was available. In addition to examples of shelter, relief, and solidarity, this exhibition presents instances of reluctance, prejudice, antisemitism, and racism. Queen's Refuge: Refugees and the University tells its story through the lens of individual biographies: one person, associated with one refugee-related phenomenon, is further represented by one object"--mission statement.
