This masterclass will braid together ideas about citizenship and immigration research with more practical suggestions about academic trajectories in the field.

Detail Summary
Date 11 December 2018
Time 15:00 - 16:30

The goal is to examine a set of ideas not just for whether they make intellectual contributions to the study of migration and membership, but also for patterns in how to develop a research program and transition from early stage ideas to well-developed research and thought, to future projects. Special attention will be paid to citizenship theory, disaggregated rights of membership, and semi-citizenship. We will look for ways that empirical research can be knit together with theory in order to thoughtfully address important political problems related to immigration and boundary dilemmas.

About the speaker: Elizabeth F. Cohen is Associate Professor of Political Science at the Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs at Syracuse University. She is the author of Semi-Citizenship in Democratic Politics (Cambridge University Press, 2009), The Political Value of Time (Cambridge University Press, 2018), Citizenship (Polity Press, 2019) and a forthcoming book on immigration enforcement in the US. Her scholarship has also been featured in Citizenship Studies, Perspectives on Politics, and Ethics and International Affairs. In addition, she publishes op-eds in newspapers such as The Washington Post and Politico.

All early career scholars are welcome to participate in this masterclass. In preparation, participants will be kindly invited to submit a note (maximum 1 page) with a short bio and a short description of their ongoing research.
