Interdisciplinary Immigration Workshop

Interdisiciplinary Immigration Workshop

The Interdisiciplinary Immigration Workshop meets every two weeks during the academic year so members can share work-in-progress about any aspect of research on migration/ immigration. Chaired by Professors Irene Bloemraad and Christina Mora, the workshop is open to graduate students, post-docs, faculty and visiting researchers. Undergraduates completing a senior thesis have also joined our discussions. Members read circulated work, offer feedback and, depending on demand, can shop a paper, grant proposal, dissertation chapter, or other in-progress work. Early drafts of work circulated in the workshop have gone on to win major awards for ‘best book,’ ‘best published article,’ ‘best student paper’ and a variety of grant and fellowship competitions. For more information, contact Professor Bloemraad at
