The Institute for Research into Superdiversity (IRiS) at the University of Birmingham is inviting abstracts for paper and panel proposals for its 10th anniversary international conference Looking back to look forward: Celebrating 10 years of research on migration, forced displacement and superdiversity. The conference will be held at the University of Birmingham, 14-16 September 2022.
IRiS at the University of Birmingham was founded in 2012 to break new ground in interdisciplinary research on international migration, forced displacement, and migration-driven superdiversity. Ever since, it has been at the forefront of empirical and theory-driven research into refugee and migrant integration, migration governance and policies, research methods in/for superdiverse contexts, irregularised migration, youth migration, and wellbeing in different welfare regimes. For the past decade, shifts in the international order and major global and regional events have changed international and internal migration, transforming societies of immigration and emigration, in turn, challenging migration scholars to reflect on and reassess their methods and epistemologies.
IRiS invites submissions for paper and panel proposals that address key dimensions and changes in contemporary migration studies research, both in the past decade and for the decade ahead. The full text of the Call for Papers is available here. To submit proposals, use the online submission form.
