Migration and diversity in European cities: winter school, 10 Jan-4 Feb 2022

The Call for Participants for the euniwell winter school on Migration And DivErsity IN EUROPEan cities (MADEINEUROPE) is now open. The winter school is open to Masters and PhD students enrolled to one of the seven universities of the euniwell network – the universities of Birmingham (UK), Florence (Italy), Leiden (the Netherlands), Cologne (Germany), Nantes (France), Linnaeus (Sweden) and Semmelweis (Hungary) – and practitioners working for one of the 102 associated partner organisations.

To apply, visit MADEINEUROPE website. Deadline: 5th November 2021.

Topics will include the politics of diversity in European cities; social work, precariousness and anti-racism; alliances and solidarities between migrants and non-migrants; historical perspectives on migration, diversity and inclusion; law, migration and urban marginality and other key topics. The sessions will adopt lenses from law, anthropology, history, social policy, social work, and sociology, and discuss a range of methodological approaches. We will focus primarily on European cities but always be attentive to the transnational connections and global networks that connect them to the world. The winter school is organised by an interdisciplinary network of migration scholars affiliated to euniwell universities and is led by professor Nando Sigona (University of Birmingham).

Over the course of four weeks, 25 selected participants will access four hours of lectures and live seminars each week, all to take place online. Each participant will receive a one-to-one mentoring session to support their academic and career planning. Students will also be divided into small groups and develop group projects, supported by tutorials with a dedicated mentor.

Participants will be able to meet in-person at a blended closing workshop and academic conference hosted by the University of Florence in Italy on 3 and 4 February 2022. Groups will be able to present their projects here. Distinguished academic speakers will be announced.

The course is free to attend, but places are limited! Travel bursaries are available for each selected participants to attend the final event at the University of Florence.
