Course date

1 July - 5 July, 2019
Application for this course is closed.

Target group

Participants will be graduate students and postdoctoral fellows working on migration issues broadly understood at different stages of fieldwork, including researchers who have yet to undertake fieldwork (but are about to), researchers in the field, and post-fieldwork researchers writing up their research. By bringing together people imagining their field, people doing the field and people struggling with the dissonances that often come from ‘writing up’ the field, we aim to encourage creative synergies and discussion.  In order to ensure that the focus of the course remains on issues to do with the field, we aim for approximately two-thirds of participants to be PhDs who have done fieldwork or postdoctoral fellows.

Undergraduates without a university degree will not be considered.

Language requirement

The language of instruction is English, thus all applicants have to demonstrate a strong command of spoken and written English to be able to participate actively in discussions at seminars and workshops. Some of the shortlisted applicants may be contacted for a telephone interview.
