 Migrations Summer Institute

A group of 30 participants are creating maps of the future as part of the inaugural Migrations Summer Institute, "Cartographies of Racial Justice: Territories of Dispossession and Migration." From July 12-23, participants will work collaboratively to create a speculative design digital atlas and podcast under the mentorship of faculty leaders Tao Leigh Goffe and Shannon Gleeson. The final keynote lecture with Emma Dabiri is open to the public. 

 The institute is supported by the Mellon Foundation and co-sponsored by the Mario Einaudi Center for International Studies.

A World on the Move Podcast

In a new monthly podcast, we are bringing expert voices on migration into conversation. Each perspective helps to broaden our scope of understanding and highlight how multidisciplinary, multi-species perspectives help us better understand our world on the move in the context of key migration themes. Hosted by Migrations postdoctoral associate Eleanor Paynter, the podcast addresses migration through the lens of the pandemic, climate, racial justice, and more.  

Spring 2021 Speaker Series

Reimagining Citizenship

The Reimagining Citizenship speaker series featured scholars, writers, and artists whose work interrogates the limits and possibilities of legal, social, and cultural belonging. Through book talks, roundtables, and presentations, we considered how multidisciplinary, multi-species approaches to the study of migration open up new understandings of citizenship, borders, and social transformation. You can watch all of this semester's speaker events now.

Research Forums

The Migrations Forum is an interdisciplinary works-in-progress series for Cornell migrations scholars, bringing together graduate students and faculty across disciplines to share ongoing research. At each forum, a migrations scholar will share their work with the group.
