Save the Date: March 1, 2019: Migration, Identity and Politics in Europe

The Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence (JMCE)housed at the Centre for European Studies at Carleton University is excited to announce the International Emerging Scholars’ Workshop “Migration, Identity and Politics in Europe” taking place on Friday, March 1, 2019, from 8:30AM to 5:00PM in Richcraft Hall, 2nd Floor Conference Rooms (2220, 2224, 2228).

This event is held during the 2019 Research Month organized by the Office of the Dean of the Faculty of Public Affairs and hosted in collaboration with the Institute of European, Russian and Eurasian Studies (EURUS)Migration & Diaspora Studies (MDS) and the International Metropolis Project at Carleton University.

About the Event: Migration has played a central role in constituting Europe and facilitating European integration and identity. Most Europeans have experiences of migration in their own family histories. Yet, across Europe, we see the term “migrant” employed in public discourse as code for “foreigner” standing in opposition to “European.” In recent years, few issues have been more divisive and politicized in European politics than responses to the challenges of migration and refugees. This workshop will illuminate the nexus between migration, identity and politics in Europe. Exploring historical and current cases drawing on disciplinary approaches from history, political science, anthropology, cultural studies, sociology and geography, this event will showcase new perspectives and approaches to European migration studies from international emerging scholars and graduate students.
