CERIS, a partner of Metropolis,  invites applications from recent and prospective PhDs to present their dissertation findings about migration and settlement at a workshop to be held on June 11, 2014 at York University, Toronto. During the workshop, participants will also receive hands-on training on how to write plain language research summaries. Following the workshop, CERIS will publish two-page summaries of the presented dissertations in its Research Summaries series at: http://www.ceris.metropolis.net/?p=3743.
This will be an opportunity for emerging scholars to discuss recent migration and settlement research with peers, learn how to write research summaries for future knowledge mobilization, and disseminate research to a wider audience via research summaries.
