Migration Workshop Invites Participants for AY 2023-24

The Migration Studies Workshop invites proposals for participation in their 2023-2024 “works in progress” series. The goal of the Workshop is to foster a community of scholars, build networks and promote social science studies of international migration from a range of methodologies and perspectives.
For 2023-2024, the work in progress series will meet virtually on the second Thursday of every month, starting October 12th from 3:30 to 5 pm. In-person sessions will be held in the 5th floor conference room at CISS (704 Commonwealth Ave).

The workshop welcomes submissions from graduate students, postdocs, faculty and applied researchers who wish to present and receive feedback on their work in preparation, whether it is a conference paper, a journal article, a book chapter or a research proposal. Selected applicants will prepare a draft paper for circulation to participants prior to the Workshop meeting. In consultation with Workshop organizers, they will have the opportunity to invite an expert in the field to offer comments on their work.

In order to apply, please fill out this google form. You will be asked to upload a current CV, as well as an extended abstract for your paper (800-1000 words). There are also a series of questions about the intended goal or outcome of the work in preparation, schedule availability, and possible expert discussants to comment on your work. Please submit proposals by September 1st 2023.
