Call for papers and posters

Migration and Families in Europe: National and Local Perspectives at a Time of Euroscepticism

7 - 8 February 2017, University of Manchester, UK

The Migration and Families in Europe: National and Local Perspectives at a Time of Euroscepticism conference is now open for submissions of papers and posters that address methods and challenges in researching family migration. This call is open to postgraduate students and early career researchers.

We invite submissions which highlight methodologies on substantive issues related to family migration in Europe; for instance, studying migrant children, transnational families and migration and ageing; using qualitative, quantitative or mixed method techniques. These may also focus on the difficulties of studying family migration, for example the ability of static nation states to understand and capture moment in relation to the family, or considerations of what and whom constitutes ‘family’ and how can this be measured and assessed. We particularly welcome innovative research methods and designs using comparative, cross-sectional, longitudinal, life history, case study approaches and ethnographies.

Presenters will have the opportunity to present their papers during Poster Sessions, Lightning Talks and Panel Sessions that will take place on the first day of the conference. Posters will be displayed for the length of the conference 7-8 February 2017.

If you would like to present a paper or a poster at the conference please submit an abstract of no more than 250 words to lindsey.garratt@manchester.ac.uk or kitty.lymperopoulou@manchester.ac.uk by the 15th of December 2016.

Please also include a list of contributing authors, affiliations and the details of the poster size and format you would like to submit. For full details on the conference and announced speakers please see: Migration and Families in Europe: National and Local Perspectives at a time of Euroscepticism
