This is a general bulletin to announce a new seminar in Migration and Ethnic studies.
The Summer Institute on International Migration, Ethnic Diversity and Cities at the International School for Humanities and Social Science in Amsterdam is a three-week summer programme, which seeks to explore the topical features of international migration and the incorporation of immigrants in the cities and states of destination. The seminar will take place in Amsterdam between June 13th – July 2nd, 2004. Classes are from Monday through Thursday. All classes are in English.
Our programme director, Dr. Jan Rath, is Director of the Institute for Migration and Ethnic Studies at the Universiteit van Amtsterdam and is internationally recoginized for his scholarship in migration studies. In addition, this year’s guest lecturers include Nancy Foner, Steven Vertovec, John Mollenkopf, Ari Zolberg, Marco Martinello and Russel King as well as many others.
The themes of the seminar will be approached in an international comparative way, building on theoretical and empirical contributions of sociologists, political scientists, anthropologists, geographers, economists, philosophers and historians. The Institute is open to advanced undergraduate, graduate and post-graduate students as well as professionals working in a field related to the topic of the Summer Institute.
The Summer Institute consists of two tracks (Track 1 and Track 2). Morning courses are for all students. In the afternoon of week 2 and 3 Track 1 students attend the thematic afternoon courses and Track 2 students attend a research seminar. In the last week all students are again convened in the afternoon closing sessions.
The regular tuition is € 2200. The tuition for students who wish to receive course credit is € 2700. Unfortunately the Summer Institute is not capable of offering scholarships.
