PhD members of the IMISCOE Standing Committee Reflexivities in Migration Studies invite PhDs and early career researchers who identify with the SC’s objectives to join them for monthly virtual peer feedback sessions.
Are you interested in the production of knowledge in the field of migration? Are you uncomfortable with the assumptions, vocabularies and conclusions of migration research? Are you trying to advance critical, self-reflexive, and transformative modes of research in your own work, but find little support in your departmental or disciplinary environment? Then join other colleagues with similar concerns, get critical feedback and support in a safe environment, and contribute to improving the research of others.
The envisaged format of the Reflexivities PhD Lab is to focus each session on up to two researchers, who will engage us with their work in a form suiting their needs: they can send in beforehand written draft work to receive feedback, or conduct a presentation on their topic, or seek advice for some problematic aspect of their work (methodological, conceptual, analytical), etc. Optimally, each presenter will have an assigned main discussant to ensure a thorough engagement with everyone’s work, but all are invited to take part and contribute to the discussion.
If you’re interested, please register by filling in this google form that will help us organize the time-tables, and we will contact you soon. The deadline for registration is 31 January 2022.
