PhD scholarship at PRIO:

PRIO is strengthening the institute’s migration research and will soon start a large project on money transfers (remittances) from immigrants in Norway to their countries of origin. The research will include a PhD project focusing on Pakistan, and we are inviting applications for a three-year researcher position as a PhD candidate.

The PhD project will concentrate on remittances from Norway to Pakistan, and on the development of Norwegian policy on migrant remittances. This case will be used to address the theoretical question of how host-country policy environments influence migrant transnationalism.

The PhD candidate will work closely with an interdisciplinary team of other researchers working on related aspects of remittances from immigrants in Norway. The position gives the opportunity to work in a leading international research environment and to contribute to an important new area of research.

Call for papers to the first issue of Ethnoscapes:

An Interdisciplinary Journal on Race and Ethnicity in the Global Context

In Fall of 2007, The Kirwan Institute for the Study of Race and Ethnicity and The Office of Minority Affairs at The Ohio State University will release its inaugural issue of Ethnoscapes: An Interdisciplinary Journal on Race and Ethnicity in the Global Context.

In Ethnoscapes we will explore the development of critical themes in the field of race and ethnic studies by positioning current work in conversation with “classic,” influential pieces.  The first issue of the journal investigates “Race and Coalition,” with consideration of Kwame Ture and Charles V. Hamilton’s “The Myths of Coalition” from their 1967 text, Black Power: The Politics of Liberation. Expanding upon the conceptualization of “coalition” presented in this classic piece, the issue will offer examinations of race and coalition in the global context and on the multicultural terrain of organizing in the United States, and of the foundations of effective multiracial organizing and the challenges posed by multiple and overlapping identities to coalition formation and efficacy.

Please contact Lidija Knuth at The Kirwan Institute for the Study of Race and Ethnicity at The Ohio State University for more information.

”Sosiologi i dag” seeks contributions to a special issue on migration:

“Sosiologi i dag” is a refereed sociology journal that publish four issues a year. We are editing an issue on migration for No. 3 2007, and want abstracts by November 15. We almost exclusively publish articles in Danish, Norwegian and Swedish, but why don’t you take this opportunity to cooperate with a Norwegian-speaking colleague and get published in Norwegian?
