The IMER seminar series has been mainly held online this year. We are hoping to implement a hybrid solution next semester in collaboration with Bergen Global Challenges to allow for a physical and online presence. We will publish our schedule for the seminar series soon.  

IMER will soon be hiring a new PhD candidate as part of its team. More news on that will follow next semester.

Katrine Mellingen Bjerke, an IMER affliate researcher, has defended her doctoral thesis earlier this month under the title of "Transnational Ageing in Place - The Case of Pakistani and Polish Migrants in Norway". We congratulate Katrine on the completion of her PhD!
