4th Emerging Immigration Scholars Conference

Call for Papers for Conference on February 3rd and 4th

4th Emerging Immigration Scholars Conference
February 3-4, 2023
UCLA Center for the Study of International Migration
UCLA Center for Immigration Law and Policy

This conference, organized by the UCLA Center for the Study of International Migration in conjunction with the UCLA Center for Immigration Law and Policy seeks to create an interdisciplinary space for junior immigration scholars to share drafts of their research and writing projects and create enduring networks of collaboration. The conference 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 fields, as well as those in education, 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. 

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 here.  The deadline for submissions is November 14.  Decisions will be made by no later than December 9, 2022.   Presenters will then be asked to register in ten days following notification of acceptance.

Presenters will be charged a conference registration fee of $150.   For presenters traveling from beyond the Los Angeles 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 2 and 3 or February 3 and 4; breakfasts will be provided by the Guest House; lunch and dinner will be provided at the conference.   However, participants will need to pay for their own transportation.


Graduate students and non-presenters: Register to attend here
