Immigration Research Reading group – Fall 2023
Concordia Research Chair on the Politics of Immigration

Led by Mireille Paquet, the reading group is open to any interested student and faculty. Participants are only responsible for reading and discussing the text assigned for each meeting date. This a stress-free environment that welcomes Concordians with an interest in immigration studies, from all levels of knowledge and disciplines. We look forward to meeting you !

For the Fall 2023, we will meet mostly online; meeting links will be provided a couple of days ahead of time.
