Conferences

The Center’s annual conference explores a major question in im/migration scholarship across a range of disciplines. These international conferences function as critical forums on which to disseminate new research on migration studies and through which to educate a wide public. Past conferences have considered the questions of birthright citizenship, the roles of immigrant entrepreneurs, the relationship between immigrant communities and metropolitan growth, the connections between migration and public health, and the legacy of the landmark immigration policy reform of 1965.
