CRONEM conference

1 05 2009

Two of our members are presenting at the CRONEM – the Centre for Research on Nationalism, Ethnicity and Multicultralism based at the University of Surrey.

Have you heard of CRONEM – the Centre for Research on Nationalism, Ethnicity and Multicultralism based at the University of Surrey? They have done some really interesting research, including a lot in London, such as a project on religion and transnationalism. CRONEM also have an annual conference.

This year’s conference is a joint conferenct with the AHRC’s Diasporas Migration and Identity Programme (who fund my phd). The call for papers has ended and the papers have been selected – a list of abstracts has just gone on line – and many of the papers look fascinating… There are also some good keynote speakers:

Peggy Levitt, Associate Professor, Wellesley College and Co-Director, Transnational Studies Initiative, Harvard University, USA
