Call for Papers: Fifth Annual University of California International Migration Conference: “Immigrant Integration in Comparative Perspective”

Conference Date: Friday, January 31, 2014

Location: Center for Comparative Immigration Studies, UC San Diego

Theme: This conference uses a comparative lens to study immigrant integration/ assimilation/ incorporation. Possible points of comparison are across place (at various scales from the continental to the national to the local); immigrant group; historical period; or type of integration (e.g. self-identification compared to residential assimilation). Comparisons of the U.S. and Europe are especially welcome.

Participants: Faculty and graduate students at any UC campus are welcome to participate.

Logistics: The conference expects to be able to cover the cost of lodging, meals, and airfare/mileage for presenters.

Deadline: If you would like to present, please send a paper title and abstract to dfitzgerald@ucsd.edu by August 1, 2013. Panels will be announced by September 1.

Co-Sponsors: UC Irvine Center for Research on Immigration, Population, and Public Policy; UC Davis Gifford Center for Population Studies; UCLA Program on International Migration
