The Essex Centre for Migration Studies, UEA Migration Research Network, and the Sussex Centre for Migration Research, invite PhD Research students to submit papers for the second Colloquium on Conceptual and Methodological Issues in Migration: “Migration, Mobility and Inequalities.” The aim of the one-day colloquium is to explore issues on migration, mobility, and inequalities and, to discuss it in relation to longer-term impacts of immigration on sending, transit, and receiving societies. Much of the most exciting research in these fields is being conducted by emerging postgraduate scholars. Recognizing this, our three research centres are collaborating to bring together PGR students across the UK and beyond to a colloquium on Migration, Mobility, and Inequalities on 20th June 2019. The colloquium will allow students to present their work to other PGR students and senior researchers from various universities in a stimulating academic environment; and serve as a creative forum for academic exchange on contemporary challenges facing migration studies. We welcome research projects from all disciplines and using a variety of methodologies.
The day will consist of different panels of 4 presentations (15 minutes each), as well as a keynote lecture by Professor David Voas from University College London (UCL).
