Migration Matters Roundtable Discussion
Feb 26, 2014, 2:30pm-4:30pm
Beyond Identity and Integration? Debating Citizenship in a Transnational Age When we talk about citizenship in transnational contexts, we invoke notions of agency, regulation and enforcement, rights and entitlements, political activism, and everyday strategies for engagement in multiple social and public arenas. The panelists will draw on their research to discuss the following question: How are notions and practices of citizenship and identity altered in shifting transnational contexts?.
Join the discussion with distinguished York scholars:
Secil Erdogan-Ertorer, Sociology
Aitana Guia, History
Michael Nijhawan, Sociology
Daphne Winland, Anthropology
Migration Matters is a brand new initiative that aims to showcase migration scholars and scholarship at York University. Through a series of seminars and roundtable discussions, we hope to spark a university-wide conversation that digs deep into pressing migration-related matters, exploring questions from a wide range of perspectives and fields of study. This project is hosted by the Centre for Refugee Studies and supported by the Office of the Vice President, Research & Innovation.
We know that there are many scholars at York who research with a lens on migration, immigration, transnationalism, settlement, refugee studies, and more, engaging in thought-provoking and meaningful work. This series is a forum for interdisciplinary discussion, providing opportunities to share knowledge and hear what others are passionate about. We also hope this will be a chance to meet each other and create connections.
