CMGC Migration Seminar

The seminar brings together a cohort of 12-15 faculty members and advanced graduate students from multiple academic departments on all three Rutgers campuses. The goals of the seminar are to provide a forum for sharing work in progress with colleagues from other disciplines, discussion of key texts and issues in the field, and fostering a collaborative intellectual community around the study of migration.

Seminar sessions ARE HELD on the first Tuesday of the month from 4:00-6:00 in the Dana Room on the fourth floor of the Dana Library on the Newark campus.
