Event description
Third Cross-Institutional PhD Colloquium on Conceptual and Methodological Issues in Migration Research: “Forced Migration”

About this Event

We invite PhD Research students to submit papers for the third Colloquium on Conceptual and Methodological Issues in “Forced Migration.”

Join experts from the Centre for Migration Studies, UEA Migration Network and the Sussex Centre for Migration Research for a two-day PGR Conference to explore issues on ‘forced migration’ by bringing various approaches together to forge a truly interdisciplinary understanding of forced migration. It will serve as a forum for stimulating academic exchange to emerging PGR scholars, allowing them to present and receive feedback on their research, network among each other and with more established academics, and gain insights into work on forced migration across the disciplines. Much of the most exciting research in these fields is being conducted by emerging postgraduate scholars. Recognising this, our three research centres are collaborating to bring together postgraduate students across the UK and beyond to a colloquium on forced migration.

The conference will also include two keynotes and a roundtable on academic publishing featuring globally recognized migration scholars that come from different disciplines. Using different methodological approaches, Christian Joppke (Keynote, University of Bern) and Yasemin Soysal (Roundtable, University of Essex) are sociologists working on citizenship and immigrants' rights while Dominik Hangartner (Keynote, ETH Zürich/LSE) and Kristian Skrede Gleditsch (Roundtable, University of Essex) are political scientists working on the integration and security implications of immigrants. This multidisciplinary line-up will be mirrored in the senior scholars serving as chairs and discussants for the different panels, including academics from Sociology (Renee Luthra, Carlos Gigoux) and Government (Tobias Bohmelt) at the University of Essex as well as migration scholars from the Universities of East Anglia (UEA) and Sussex.

We invite both PhD research students from both inside and outside the Essex community, to present their work to other postgraduate students and senior researchers from various universities in a stimulating academic environment. This colloquium will 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.
