Featuring a keynote with Donna Gabaccia, Professor of History, University of Toronto– Scarborough

Over the past two decades, scholars from various disciplines built up a body of scholarship about gender and migration. Shifting focus away from a universalizing male experience, this field established that gender dynamically structures migration and immigrant incorporation processes. This conference builds on this innovative shift in the scholarship by providing a forum for scholars at the forefront of gender and migration studies to engage with each other’s work.

The conference aims to bring together an interdisciplinary group of scholars, ranging from graduate students to senior scholars, engaged in cutting-edge research on gender and migration. By engaging with one another’s work, we plan to identify innovative theoretical, methodological, and analytical strategies that will advance scholarship in the field.
