The main objective of this IMISCOE Summer Course is to provide an intensive program that promotes Mediterranean Migration Studies. It will be topic-oriented, and will follow three main drivers:
- Promoting innovative research shaping the Mediterranean Migration Research agenda.
- Debating new patterns/drivers of Mediterranean Human Mobility and governance reactions.
- Following Med-Thinking by enhancing multiple views of the Mediterranean as a category of analysis, avoiding Eurocentrism and generalized arguments, and focusing on positive views of migration.
Considering 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. Therefore, it will be required that students work in teams and create presentations directed at adapting their research projects to Mediterranean Migration Studies as a new area of research.
The Ph.D. Summer School is offered to multi-disciplinary and international individuals working on Mediterranean Migration. A maximum of 20 outstanding Ph.D. students will be admitted.
Multi-disciplinarity, multi-topics, multi-methodologies and multi-sited coverage will be ensured. Additionally, we will be gender sensitive both at the level of professors, students and topics covered. Teaching materials, ICT technologies, social events, as well as social and policy encounters will be included.
The inclusion of narratives from the South providing new views/voices/perspectives is part of our agenda.
The program includes a range of academic activities such as: lectures (opening and closing lectures), academic and social roundtables, a documentary screening with the presence of the directors as well as PhD. Workshops.
