The Institute:
The Summer Institute will consist of formal and informal discussions,
seminars, training sessions and lectures designed to expose advanced
graduate students and recent post doctoral scholars to recent theories and
cutting-edge research in international migration and refugee studies. The
emphasis will be on presentation and discussion of new ideas and unpublished
research that can help to shape doctoral dissertations and postdoctoral
research projects. The Institute includes a two-day conference (June 28-29)
in which senior scholars and some junior scholars will report on their
current research projects. Training modules and seminars preceding and
following the conference will explore specific substantive, methodological
and career development issues and provide opportunities for junior scholars
to discuss their individual research with senior and other scholars in
small-group and one-on-one meetings. Conference sessions will focus on key
topics of multidisciplinary significance, including:
* Relationships among gender, class, race/ethnicity, and immigrant
* Second-generation immigrant mobility and integration
* Global economic and population changes and the future of international
migration policies
* Migration, gender, and health
* Transnational involvements, citizenship dynamics and immigrant
* Immigrant education, language choice, spatial location and mobility, and
integration patterns and policies
* Political mobilization and access to social services among immigrants
Training workshops will be conducted on such subjects as comparative and
historical methods in immigration research, network-based approaches to
documenting and measuring migration, getting immigration research funded and
published, and job placement for immigration scholars.
