International Conference on Critical Migration Scholarship

November 1-2, 2021
Hosted by the U. of San Francisco 

The Master's in Migration Studies Program (MIMS), in conjunction with Jesuit universities, the Jesuit Migration Network, and Global community partners, will host an international virtual conference on November 1 and 2, 2021 at the University of San Francisco, California. 

We are currently inviting abstract submissions to present your research or work on migration-based issues. The conference aims to center and highlight the narratives of those most impacted by migration, including understanding the role of Jesuit organizations in supporting immigrant and refugee communities. Through keynote speakers, panel sessions, and roundtables, the conference aims to complicate our understandings of push and pull factors of migration, highlighting interventions utilizing human rights-based approaches and incorporating narratives that speak to the impact of migration on internally displaced communities.  

The conference seeks to center the questions, "what is critical migration studies" and "how this field impacts both the scholarship and work with communities on the ground?" We are looking for submissions from scholars with interdisciplinary approaches connecting to migration as well as activists and leaders in community-based organizations.Submission deadline is September 1, 2021

You may propose an entire panel or submit a single paper. If you are proposing a panel, please include a discussant and the number of papers you are submitting. Click here for more details.Any inquiries? Contact MIMS Academic Director Amy Argenal at aargenal@usfca.edu.
