This ground-breaking book reflects on material, visual and digital culture from the Calais Jungle—the informal camp where, before its destruction in October 2016, more than 10,000 displaced people lived. Lande: The Calais 'Jungle' and Beyond reassesses how we understand crisis, activism, and the infrastructure of national borders in Refugee and Forced Migration Studies, foregrounding the politics of environments, time, and the ongoing legacies of empire. Introducing a major collaborative exhibit at Oxford’s Pitt Rivers Museum, this book argues that an anthropological focus on duration, impermanence, and traces of the most recent past can recenter the ongoing human experiences of displacement in Europe today.
