The workshop will be a 1.5-day event. This will include two plenary lectures from experts in the field of migration research, alongside 4-panel discussion groups. Panellists will have the chance to discuss their work in a constructive academic setting.

We are looking for applications from scholars with an interest in migration studies, volunteering, diversity, identity and narrative study. We are also interested in attracting proposals from researchers who study these themes using ethnographic and creative arts informed research methodologies.

We welcome contributions from critical academics, including early career and minority scholars. We are particularly interested in conceptual and comparative papers. The intention is to present our work and develop research papers which can later be formulated into co-authored chapters of an open access IMISCOE book. Participants are expected to present draft-papers at the workshop.

We will announce the keynote speakers in March.
