Calling all Ottawa area students studying migration: The Migration and Diaspora Student Society at Carleton University invites Honours and Graduate students to submit abstracts for presentations to our Student Research Conference, which will be hosted at Carleton University on Friday February 8th, 2019. Students from all disciplines who are doing a project related to migration and diaspora studies are welcome to participate. In addition to research papers, we also welcome proposals for creative projects, such as photography or film.

Please submit an abstract (300 words maximum) that summarizes your proposed paper and presentation to rachel.mcnally@carleton.caThe deadline to submit abstracts is December 15, 2018. If your paper is selected, you will have until January 25th to submit your full paper (two weeks before the conference).

Papers will be grouped thematically into panel presentations, and Carleton graduate students or professors will facilitate a discussion about the papers and provide feedback on student work.

Thanks to funding from the Migration and Diaspora Studies initiative at Carleton, the conference is free, but registration will be required for presenters and other attendees. Students from outside of Ottawa are welcome, but we are not able to assist with accommodations or travel costs.

If you have any questions, please contact the conference coordinator, Rachel McNally, at:
