Appel à communications : “Migration Researchers in the Field: A Graduate Student Conference on Method & Theory” Sussex Centre for Migration Research (SCMR), University of Sussex (Royaume-Uni), 08-09/04/2014 — LIMITE : 15/02/2014

The Migration Studies PhD students at the University of Sussex are glad to
announce a Call for Papers for their third two-day international graduate
student conference. The conference is open to doctoral students across all
disciplines, in the UK and beyond, who are working on migration-related
issues. We welcome 20-minute presentations on a wide range of topics, with
an emphasis on methods and theory.

It is anticipated that the conference will include panels that focus on the
following (although submissions are not limited to these areas):
-Migration policy processes
-Transnational fields
-Ethnography of migration
-Climate-related migration
-Gender/class issues
-Irregular migrants
-Migration and development

This graduate conference is an opportunity for researchers working on
innovative migration- related doctoral projects to present their work and
receive constructive and critical feedback from interested and qualified
peers. Presentations of PhD projects adopting qualitative, quantitative and
mixed-methods approaches from different disciplinary and theoretical
perspectives are welcome. We encourage a wide and creative range of themes
and contributions to multi-sited and comparative approaches.

The event will coincide with the first Sussex Centre for Migration Research
(SCMR)/Journal of Ethnic and Migration Studies (JEMS) annual conference,
which will take place at Sussex on 10 April 2014. Graduate Conference
participants are invited to stay on for this conference, and JEMS will
award a ‘best paper’ from the Graduate Conference, which will be
subsequently published in the journal after review by the editor. The
keynote for the SCMR/JEMS event is Prof Rogers Brubaker (UCLA), who will
present on ‘Linguistic and Religious Pluralism: Between Difference and
Inequality.’

Date and location: the graduate conference will take place at the
University of Sussex, in Brighton, UK, on the 8-9 April 2014.
Deadline for submission: please send abstracts of no more than 300 words by
15 February 2014 to: js290@sussex.ac.uk. Accepted participants will be
notified by 28 February 2014.

Costs: Participation in the conference is free of charge for speakers, and
lunch and refreshments will be provided. A limited number of travel
bursaries of £100 each are available for applicants from outside the UK. If
you are interested in being considered for one of these, please provide a
paragraph-long explanation of why you require such funding.
