Workshop on Race, Ethnicity, and Migration (WREM)

The Workshop on Race, Ethnicity, and Migration (WREM) is designed to provide a space for faculty, research associates, and advanced PhD candidates to share research on race, ethnicity, and/or migration (broadly defined). Research can be at any stage of completion (an extended abstract, finished manuscript, research presentation, think piece, etc.). Participants will circulate their research material with a descriptive memo several days before the workshop so that the other participants can provide targeted and constructive interdisciplinary feedback in time for the actual workshop.

WREM meets one Tuesday each month, from 12:30-1:30pm (four times throughout the semester). Spring 2017 workshops meet in the College Arts & Humanities Institute (CAHI) seminar room.
