The Cambridge Review of Movement and Risk



The Cambridge Review of Movement and Risk [ROMR, pronounced ‘Roamer’] aims to take an multidisciplinary approach to the topic of movement, highlighting the interconnected flow of objects, bodies, and data, and how to recognize, prepare and mitigate for risks associated with such flows.

Movement is part of our nature, human and non-human. It is not only a physical phenomenon but in our imagination and psyche...ROMR encompasses the wholeness of this complex notion in its beauty and destructiveness – it brings a much-needed kaleidoscopic perspective to a most personal and critical issue for society to seriously reckon with this century.

The phenomenon of displacement continues to confront us and question our understanding of ourselves. I feel very honored to have been approached to be a partner artist for this project. Its uniquely introspective engagement that brings research scholars and artists on equal level is ripe to bring significant cultural and social impact.

The ROMR journal is a dynamic publication bringing vital attention to
questions of movement and migration at a time when these topics have a crucial
bearing on public life. It has already showed great promise bringing together underrepresented perspectives on research of critical importance, including forced migration, displacement through war, and movement caused by the climate crisis.
