CMS International Research Conference 2024

May 15 - May 16


UBC Centre for Migration Studies is thrilled to invite you to its International Research Conference 2024 in conjunction with Hong Kong Baptist University Faculty of Social Sciences. This annual conference serves as a platform for scholars and practitioners to explore the intricate dynamics of migration and mobility in today’s interconnected world. Our 2024 theme, Belonging and Mobility in a Transnational World, encapsulates the complex interplay between identity, movement, and connectivity across borders.

Date: May 15-16, 2024

Time: 8:30 AM – 5:00 PM PDT

Place: xʷθəθiqətəm or Place of Many Trees, Liu Institute for Global Issues or online (keynote only)

This year, we are honoured to welcome Professor Nina Glick Schiller as the in-person keynote speaker. Her hybrid talk, titled The End of Migration as We Know It: Studying and Opposing Regimes of Dehumanization, will take place on Wednesday, May 15, from 9:30 AM to 11:00 AM (PDT). It will explore how today’s intense anti-migration politics are producing the end of migration as we know it and the emergence of migration regimes of rightless labour and permanent transience.

All panels are open to the public, but we kindly ask for your RSVP. RSVPs are required for conference lunches.
