Citizenship and Migration
June 25–July 6, 2007
Wissenschaftskolleg zu Berlin, Germany
Eamonn Callan, Professor of Education, Stanford University, CA
David Miller, Professor of Political Theory, University of Oxford, Nuffield College, England
APPLICATION DEADLINE: Postmarked by February 28, 2007.
Western Europe and the U.S.A. are in the midst of social changes triggered in part by new migration patterns that put established conceptions of national citizenship under unprecedented strain. Addressing these issues requires an interdisciplinary approach that engages philosophy, political science, law, sociology, history, education, and other relevant fields. Thus applications are welcome from scholars in a broad array of disciplines.
The SIAS Summer Institutes are designed to support the development of scholarly networks and collaborative projects among young scholars from the United States and Europe. Led by distinguished senior scholars, the institutes are open to recent Post-docs (Ph.D. not earlier than 2002) and Ph.D. candidates who are now studying or teaching at a European or American institution of higher education. The program seeks to explore theoretical, methodological, and empirical issues; promote the integration of approaches and interpretations from various disciplines into the participants' research; review the state of research in an institute's field; and identify promising areas for further research.
Each institute will accommodate twenty participants and will meet twice, once in the United States and once in Europe. Participants will present their research and collaborate on new projects at the seminars and between the two meetings. Participants will be expected to attend both meetings. The program will provide stipends and cover travel and lodging costs for both the American and European meetings.
