we’re pleased to let you know that MCRG is now on Twitter @EdinburghMCRG. We’re going to be using Twitter for the purposes of the Migration & Citizenship Digest which we used to send out by email, in other words to bring to your attention any upcoming seminars, conferences, jobs and training opportunities in the field of migration and citizenship. For those who are not on twitter, we will send an email to the MCRG list every week with a link to our twitter webpage so you can view all our posts from that week. For those who are on twitter, please follow us so that we can follow you: we will be happy to retweet any relevant posts. Here is the link: https://twitter.com/EdinburghMCRG
Secondly, we would like to invite all MCRG members to consider giving a paper in our seminar series either later this semester or next semester. We welcome any seminar proposal relating to completed or ongoing research. If you are interested, please reply to firstname.lastname@example.org with some prospective dates which would work for you, a provisional title and a few lines about the proposed topic. For information, we are aiming to hold our seminars on Tuesday lunchtimes (we can be flexible if this doesn’t work for you though).
Last but not least, don’t forget to come along tomorrow to our first seminar of the semester, featuring Scottish Government statistician Celia Macintyre. This will be essential for anyone interested in migration flows to and within Scotland:
Understanding migration in Scotland—origin destination data and micro data in the 2011 census, a guide for potential users
30 Sept. 2014, Chrystal Macmillan Building, 15a George Square, Seminar room 5, 12:30-14:00pm
We look forward to seeing many of you tomorrow.
Alistair and Sophia
