The Race, Ethnicity and Migration (REM) Workshop provides an intellectual home for scholars of race, ethnicity, and migration at Columbia University and in New York City. This interdisciplinary workshop primarily draws on the interests of faculty and doctoral students from a range of interdisciplinary backgrounds, including sociology, history, political science, social anthropology, social work, urban studies, public health, communication studies and public policy.
The primary purpose of this workshop is to circulate works-in-progress in order to elicit feedback and suggestions for improving scholarly work such as dissertation chapters or research proposals, journal articles or book chapter submissions, grant applications and conference papers. The workshop provides an intellectual venue for scholars to present their own research and get feedback from others in a supportive and constructive environment.
The workshop meets monthly. At each of our meetings, there will be two presenters and two discussants. Participation is open to both faculty and doctoral students at Columbia University and in the Greater New York Metropolitan Area. Participants are expected to read the papers in advance and come prepared to participate in the discussion.
For the 2014-2015 academic year, this workshop was a collaborative effort between the “Workshop on Critical Approaches to Race and Ethnicity” at the Center for the Study of Ethnicity and Race and the “Race, Ethnicity and Migration Workshop” in the Department of Sociology.
