CfP - 16th Annual IMISCOE Conference June 26-28, 2019 Malmö University, Sweden
Understanding International Migration in the 21st Century: Conceptual and Methodological Approaches:
The growing diversity and complexity of international migration present a need for reconceptualizing migration research. The aim of the 2019 IMISCOE Annual Conference is to facilitate exchanges in new concepts and innovative methodologies for understanding human migration in the 21st Century. We welcome proposals from various disciplines, such as political science, sociology, economics, history, law, anthropology, social work, public administration, demography, social geography, and others.
New PhD Representative of the IMISCOE PhD Network: Giulia Mezzetti
The PhD network keeps expanding every year, attracting the interest of numerous early career researchers involved in migration and integration-related studies. At the 2018 Annual Conference in Barcelona, the PhD Network organized three workshops specifically addressing PhDs: two were devoted to career development – publishing and research funding opportunities – and one concentrated on the use of categories in migration research. Furthermore, the network organized an “Intergenerational Feedback” session, where PhDs could receive advice on their research from senior academics through small group discussions.
