Every year we host an annual PhD research colloquium in collaboration with our partners across the Eastern Arc as well as the Sussex Centre for Migration Research.
In 2021, we had our colloquium “Racial and Ethnic Inequalities in Migration Research” online including presentations by eleven postgraduate research students from across the UK, Germany, India, Italy, Canada and the United States, presented their emerging PhD projects. The event featured three panels on the following themes: race, gender and identity; racialisation and rights, and ethnicity and the life course, as well as two keynotes by Lucinda Platt (LSE) and Kate Choi (University of Western Ontario).
In 2020 we sadly had to cancel our colloquium due to the pandemic.
In 2019, sixteen postgraduate research students from across the UK, Germany, Spain, Australia, Belgium, the Netherlands and France presented their emerging PhD projects. This event was held in collaboration with the UEA Migration Network and the Sussex Centre for Migration Research. The event featured five panels on the following themes; identity and belonging, mobilities and transnationalism, the labour market and welfare state, governance and policies, and migration and gender. Read the full programme from our 2019 colloquium.
In 2018 we held our inaugural cross-institutional colloquium with the UEA Migration Network and the Sussex Centre for Migration Research, featuring 22 presentations on migration and gender, refugees, migration and health, socioeconomic integration, and a keynote lecture by Yasemin Soysal.
