Annual BAGSS Conference 2014: Migration and Integration

The Bamberg Graduate School of Social Science (BAGSS) invites contributions to its first interdisciplinary Ph.D. Conference on “Migration and Integration” to be held on July 14-15 in Bamberg, Germany (Call for papers is available pdf here). The conference provides an opportunity for Ph.D. students to present and discuss their research with colleagues and leading scholars in the field. The conference panels cover a wide range of migration and integration issues, including:

  • Education
  • Labour market
  • Policy analysis
  • Language (e.g. acquisition, retention)
  • Political participation and representation
  • Cultural integration
  • Social integration

In each session an invited senior participant will present his or her latest research and provide feedback on the papers presented in the session (see here for a list of confirmed participants). A Best Paper Award will be presented to the author(s) of a paper presented at the conference, selected by the Program/Conference Chairs. 

Keynote speaker

Prof. Richard Alba (City University of New York - Vice President of the American Sociological Association and President of the Eastern Sociological Society)
