UC PromISE is offering faculty research grants of up to $12,000 to support research on students who are undocumented and/or from mixed-status families; students are broadly defined at any education level and include those who have left or been pushed out of school. Application deadline is March 22.
The presentation looks at a unique form of immigrant transnational practice—cross-space consumption. We consider the act of consumption to have not only functional value that satisfies material needs, but also social value that confers symbolic meaning and social status.
The workshop will be held at the Department of Economics, University of Copenhagen from June 12-13 and is part of the five-year research program EARN (Economic Assimilation Research Network) funded by the Innovation Fund Denmark.
The 8-day workshop will train up to 30 graduate students, researchers and beginning faculty in best-practices and in methodologies particularly relevant to the study of immigration and migration populations.
The conference addresses gender differences in migration decisions and their consequences for the origin and destination countries as well as the role of gender in family migration. Draft submission deadline: November 30, 2018.
