IMISCOE supported our EuroMedMig Ph.D. Summer School initiative entitled "Mediterranean Migration Studies: Theoretical and Empirical Research Agenda".

This Ph.D. Summer School is an initiative of the EuroMedMig IMISCOE Regional Network. It is also an activity within a three-year (2019-2022) Erasmus+ Jean Monnet Network Program (Project Reference: 611260-EPP-1-2019-1-ES-EPPJMO- NETWORK) entitled “Mapping European Mediterranean Migration Studies” (Acronym: EUMedMi) and coordinated by GRITIM-UPF. More information can be found here.

The main objective is to provide an intensive course promoting Mediterranean Migration Studies. It will be topic-oriented, and will follow three main principles:

  1. Innovative research shaping MedMig Research agenda.
  2. New narratives related to MedMig avoiding Euro-centrism and generalized/simplistic arguments.
  3. New patterns/drivers of Mediterranean Human Mobility.

The lectures will contribute to a Handbook we are preparing in the framework of the Jean Monnet Network. Taking into account the different topics that the Ph.D. students are developing in their studies, the common concern on methodologies, categories and approaches of analysis will be the main instrumental focus. This is why it is required to also work in teams and create presentations directed at adapting their Ph.D. projects to Mediterranean Migration Studies.

The Ph.D. Summer School is addressed to a multidisciplinary and international group working on Mediterranean Migration. A maximum of 20 Ph.D. students will be admitted. The students will be selected on the bases of their academic curriculum vitae and the abstracts of their research paper.

We will ensure multidisciplinarity, multi-topics, multi-methodologies and geographical coverage, we will also be gender sensitive both at the level of professors and students and topics covered.

We will include teaching materials, ICT technologies, social events, as well as social and policy encounters. Films from the South providing new views/voices/perspectives is in our agenda.

We consider the presence of 8/10 professors. All the facilities such as computers and projectors will be provided by the University of Pompeu Fabra in Barcelona without the necessity to rely on external suppliers.

The Ph.D. Summer School will be held at UPF Barcelona in June-July 2021. More information will be shared soon.
