The Center for the Study of International Migration (UCLA) and the Center for Comparative Immigration Studies (UCSD) invite you to attend the “Emerging Immigration Scholars” workshops, scheduled every other Friday from 12-2 pm Pacific, starting on January 15 and continuing until March 12. The workshops seek to create an interdisciplinary space for junior immigration scholars to share drafts of their research and writing projects and elicit feedback from one another as well as the community of migration scholars throughout the UC system. The workshops are open to the public. Workshop sessions will feature brief presentations by authors followed by comments, segueing quickly to discussion.

All papers are available via a shared box folder. Persons interested in gaining access to the papers should contact Sophia Ángeles at or Warren Tam at for password.
