OFFA HOUSE PROJECT: DISPLACEMENT AND RECONSTRUCTION OF THE SELF IN REFUGEE NARRATIVESProf. Doutor Paulo Medeiros, Warwick, GBThe Offa House Project — named after an estate in Coventry belonging to the Church of England first designated as a possible home for Syrian refugees — was a short research intervention financed by the AHRC. Its main goal was to collect personal narratives of displacement and exile from the Syrian refugees who came to Coventry, the first designated city of sanctuary in the United Kingdom. A series of extensive interviews have been recorded and will be analysed in conjunction with a reflection on how the so-called ‘refugee crisis’ forces a renewed questioning of the European project.
