Citizenship and Migration
June 25-July 6, 2007
Wissenschaftskolleg zu Berlin, Germany
Faculty: Eamonn Callan, Professor of Education, Stanford University, CA

College, England

APPLICATION DEADLINE: Postmarked by February 28, 2007.

Western Europe and the U.S.A. are in the midst of social changes triggered 
in part by new migration patterns that put established conceptions of 
national citizenship under unprecedented strain. Addressing these issues 
requires an interdisciplinary approach that engages philosophy, political 
science, law, sociology, history, education, and other relevant fields. Thus 
applications are welcome from scholars in a broad array of disciplines.

The SIAS Summer Institutes are designed to support the development of 
scholarly networks and collaborative projects among young scholars from the 
United States and Europe. Led by distinguished senior scholars, the 
institutes are open to recent Post-docs (Ph.D. not earlier than 2002) and 
Ph.D. candidates who are now studying or teaching at a European or American 
institution of higher education. The program seeks to explore theoretical, 
methodological, and empirical issues; promote the integration of approaches 
and interpretations from various disciplines into the participants' 
research; review the state of research in an institute's field; and identify 
promising areas for further research.

Each institute will accommodate twenty participants and will meet twice, 
once in the United States and once in Europe. Participants will present 
their research and collaborate on new projects at the seminars and between 
the two meetings. Participants will be expected to attend both meetings. The 
program will provide stipends and cover travel and lodging costs for both 
the American and European meetings.
