Emerging Immigration Scholars Conference: Call for Papers

Call for Papers: Emerging Immigration Scholars Conference
February 26 and 27, 2016
UCLA Center for the Study of International Migration

This conference, organized by the UCLA Center for the Study of International Migration seeks to create an interdisciplinary space for junior immigration scholars to share drafts of their research and writing projects and get to know one another. It will be open to emerging immigration scholars, including post-doctoral fellows and tenure-track and non-tenure track faculty who have held professorial positions for eight years or fewer. The conference seeks to attract presenters working in a broad range of social science disciplines, as well as ethnic studies, law, public health, urban planning, public policy, and social welfare.

The conference will consist of workshops, with comments by leading immigration scholars, as well as two conference-wide panel sessions. Commentators and panelists include Matt Barreto, Rogers Brubaker, Jack Citrin, Louis DiSipio, Ingrid Eagly, Kelly Lytle Hernandez, Ruben Hernandez-Leon, Hiroshi Motomura, Marjorie Faulstich Orellana, Carola Suárez-Orozco, David Sears, Roberto Suro, Roger Waldinger, Steven Wallace, and Andreas Wimmer

The workshops are designed to allow for intensive discussion and constructive criticism of papers that may still be in the in-process stage. Papers submitted for works-in-progress sessions should range from 25 to no more than 40 (double-spaced) pages in length.

The conference will also be open to participants who may not have a paper to present. However, the expectation in any workshop is that all participants will be expected to be able to comment on papers discussed in that session.

Interested presenters are requested to submit a draft paper or a 5 page prospectus, with c.v., which can be uploaded at this address: http://ucla.in/1NAXFDG. The deadline for submissions is January 1, 2016. Decisions will be made by no later than January 15, 2016. Presenters will then be asked to register ten days following notification of acceptance.

Presenters and participants will be charged a conference registration fee of $75. For presenters traveling from beyond the LA region, the UCLA Center for the Study of International Migration will pay for up to two nights of accommodation at the UCLA guest house on either February 25 and 26 or February 26 and 27. However, participants will need to pay for their own transportation.
