The Migration Studies Working Group invites OSU graduate students and faculty, as well as Columbus-based community organizations and teachers, to send a proposal for a paper, or for a roundtable or interactive workshop, for our second annual Migration Studies Symposium, a full day event on Friday, March 2, 2018. Interventions may directly or indirectly connect to the theme “Walls and Passages”; we are interested in a variety of interpretations of and responses to this phrase. This interdisciplinary symposium will offer a forum for sharing and discussing a range of current work connected with migration experiences and migration studies. In curating this event, we welcome opportunities to collaborate and are especially interested in creating space for conversations that bridge community building, advocacy, teaching, and scholarly work.
Please send your 150-word proposal to firstname.lastname@example.org by Dec. 31, 2017.
If you would like to volunteer for this event, please get in touch with us at the above email address.
“…there is as much difference between a border, both boundary and passage, and a wall, synonymous with reciprocal enclosure, as between alterity and identity.” – Michel Agier (Borderlands, 2016)
