Ethnographies of Migration Workshop
London School of Economics and Political Science
Saturday 19th & Sunday 20th June, 2010
CALL FOR PAPERS
The Departments of Anthropology and Sociology, in association with the LSE Migration Studies Unit, invite you to participate in a two-day graduate workshop exploring ethnographic approaches to the study of migration. Following the success of last year's event, the Ethnographies of Migration Workshop will provide a forum for PhD researchers to exchange ideas, present their work and receive critical feedback. Presentations may be based on recently completed, ongoing or planned research on any aspect of migration.
In order to make this event as useful as possible to all PhD students, participants should choose from one of two options:
Option A: Those in the early stages of doctoral research can give a 20-minute presentation of their plans or project as a whole, followed by a 20-minute group discussion.
Option B: Those who have already begun writing can present a 5,000-word paper in a presentation lasting 45 minutes, followed by a 30-minute group discussion. Work-in-progress papers are welcome. Whether you want to pre-circulate copies of your paper will be up to you.
Titles and abstracts (max. 250 words) should be submitted by Monday 26th April 2010, including whether you would like to participate in Option A or B. Presenters will be notified by May 17th 2010. Lunch on both days and dinner on the Saturday will be provided. Travel and accommodation expenses are the responsibility of workshop participants.
To submit titles and abstracts, or for further information, please contact Ethnographiesofmigration@gmail.com
