The Division of Social Sciences Spring 2023 Luncheon Seminar Series

Speaker: Ellen Percy Kraly, Professor of Geography and Environmental Studies

Date/Time:  March 9th, 12-1pm

Location: 27 Persson Hall Auditorium 

Title: Social Consequences of Forced and Refugee Migration:  Framing a Review

Brief description: This review prepared for the Annual Review of Sociology considers perspectives and research on the outcomes and implications of forced and refugee migration for migrants and communities of settlement. Collaborating with colleagues at University of Tehran and City University of New York, we adopt a social demographic lens to illustrate a record of research on the consequences of forced and refugee migration and settlement. Accordingly, we review empirical literature on patterns of spatial mobility, health and well-being, social and economic integration, and family and community dynamics at different scales. Implications of global issues such as climate change and the Covid-19 pandemic are considered. Analytic issues emerge from the intersections, and lack thereof, among forced migration, refugee studies, and migration policy analysis and provide critical opportunities for contributions by sociologists and social scientists more generally.

Lunch: Lunch provided w/ vegetarian options, while supplies last. We've removed the single use water bottles to help reduce the waste from these events. We'll provide a jug of water though, so feel free to bring your reusable cup to help us reduce waste.


The next talk in this series is on March 23rd with Professor Hall (HIST/NAST).
