The Oxford Migration Studies Society 1st Annual Conference to be held Saturday, 4 May 2013, provides an interdisciplinary forum that hopes to connect scholars and practitioners with an interest in migration from around the world. This year’s conference, themed ‘Theory and Practice’, will explore different approaches to understanding migration as a fundamental part of today’s world, highlight the way practice can inform theory, and discuss how academic theory can be used in real-world situations to understand the importance of migration for all involved. The Society welcomes papers from all disciplines and practitioners around the world and papers can focus on the migration experience from the state’s perspective, the migrant’s perspective, the migration industry’s perspective in sending and receiving countries as well as on the journey. The Society encourages the submission of papers about migration in any region in the world and which use various methodologies.
Submission abstracts are due on Saturday, 9 February 2013 at firstname.lastname@example.org. Include in the subject heading: Conference Submission – your name – title of your paper. Please note that the word limit for abstract is 200 words.
Accepted presenters will be put in contact with distinguished professors from Oxford International Migration Institute (IMI), Centre on Migration, Policy and Society (COMPAS), and the Refugee Studies Centre (RSC) for feedback and comments on their submissions.
