On November 26-29th 2008, the second African Migration workshop will be convened by the Faculty of Letters and Social Sciences of the Mohammed V University Rabat - Agdal and the International Migration Institute at the University of Oxford. This workshop aims to contribute to the creation of a map of contemporary African migration patterns through presentations of empirical research and to discuss innovative methods and methodologies of migration research. This year's workshop, entitled African migration research: methods and methodology, seeks to highlight new techniques utilised by researchers exploring migration in the African context and to provide room for discussion and for an in-depth analysis of the benefits, disadvantages and potential of innovative methodologies. The call for papers is open to scholars and graduate students based in North African and sub-Saharan African universities who are adopting original methodological approaches to empirical migration research in Africa.
The deadline for the submission of abstracts is May 30th 2008 and, for the authors whose proposals are accepted, the deadline for submission of full papers is September 1st 2008.
