Migration Studies Scholars at Ohio State at 2018 Meet and Greet!

About 30 scholars, including established and new faculty. graduate students and post doctoral researchers joined the MSWG for its 2018 Meet and Greet event on 8/29. Thanks to a generous donation by the Migration, Mobility and Immobility Discovery Theme (MMI), attendees were able to get to know each other and network while enjoying tasty treats. Discussions ranging from historical to contemporary, multiple world regions, social sciences and humanities filled the afternoon. The event proved a great way to ring in the new academic year with an eye toward new and growing projects and collaborations. We look forward to seeing many of you at our upcoming events and the Spring Symposium.

The event was co-sponsored by the MMI. We look forward to future collaborations between our groups, and with scholars around campus.

Stay tuned for our upcoming events!
