From 8 to 10 November 2012, the Swinburne Institute for Social Research will host an Emerging Scholars Workshop for up to fifteen research students working on issues of forced migration. The workshop will be facilitated by Professors Sandy Gifford and Klaus Neumann of the Swinburne Institute. It is envisaged that participants will also have the opportunity to discuss their ideas with Professor Didier Fassin (Princeton University and Université Paris 13).
 
Participants in the Emerging Scholars Workshop are expected also to contribute to a symposium, "Wanted: New Paradigms? Forced Migration, Mobilities and Humanitarianism in Australia and Beyond," which will be held at Swinburne University of Technology on 12 and 13 November 2012.
 
In the past few years, the Swinburne Institute has held a series of such workshops – on topics such as “refugees”, “democracy”, and “memory” – to foster collaborations and intellectual exchanges among postgraduate students, to expose emerging scholars to new ideas, and to create intensive learning environments involving students and senior scholars.
 
All students enrolled in a research degree in 2012 and writing a dissertation about an aspect of forced migration are eligible to apply. Relevant disciplines include, among others: anthropology; political science; sociology; history; human geography; law; psychology; cultural, literary and cinema studies; and philosophy. We are particularly interested in students doing research in one of the following areas: displacement and resettlement; mobility and social memory; and humanitarianism.
 
Successful applicants will be expected
- to produce a written paper of approx. 6,000 words on an aspect of forced migration by 28 September 2012, which will be circulated to all workshop participants, 
- to engage with each other’s writings, and 
- to read at least five designated articles / book chapters ahead of the workshop.

The Swinburne Institute will pay for participants’ accommodation from 8 to 13 November and their registration fees for the symposium. Participants will need to pay for their own travel.
 
Prospective participants need to submit, by **27 April 2012,** an application comprising:
- a CV, including the names and contact details of at least one academic referee 
- a one-page description of their current research project 
- a writing sample of no more than 10 pages

Late applications will not be accepted. Successful applicants will be notified in May.
