6th RSA MICaRD Research Network Symposium

‘Hospitality, Community and Welcome:

Researching working lives, representations and everyday realities of migrants’

University of Lincoln, 29-30th September 2022

Migration researchers from across the UK and Europe will join colleagues at the University later this month at an inter-disciplinary migration conference.

The next Regional Studies Association MICaRD research network event will be hosted by Lincoln International Business School on 29-30th September 2022.

 

The conference will bring together researchers with a shared interest in exploring contemporary issues in migration and mobilities.

Dozens of presentations will explore themes of hospitality, community and welcome in the lives of migrants. There will also be plenty of opportunities for dialogue around the complexities, challenges and futures of migration and mobilities.

Participants will also have chance to hear from local practitioners who are bridging the gap between academic research and grassroots activities in migrant communities.

Through this conference, the organisers hope to strengthen the community of migration scholars, making links across disciplinary, geographic and cultural boundaries.

College of Social Science Research Showcase 2022

Each year, we like to celebrate the hard work and exciting impact of the research taking place within the College of Social Science through an annual Research Showcase. This year we have decided to have two overall themes for the showcase.

The morning session will concentrate on showcasing our college’s work relating to health and wellbeing, the partnerships locally that associate with this and the link with the Lincoln Medical School. In the afternoon, we will hear from research units across the college to promote internal collaboration, including PGR activity as well as collaborative work.

The showcase will be hosted in the Lincoln Medical School on Wednesday 20th July 2022 between 09.00 – 17.00. This event will also be live streamed via our College Research Blog.

To attend the College of Social Science Annual Research Showcase, you can now register for the full day, or afternoon session via: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/college-of-social-science-annual-showcase-2022-registration-194292804007

Please be aware, the afternoon session does not guarantee you a seat in the lecture theatre where the academics are presenting. The presentations will be live streamed into the lecture theatre next door, allowing you to still participate in all networking opportunities.

 

Should there be seats available in the other lecture theatre, these will be given on a first come first serve basis.

We hope you will join us for what promises to be an exciting and thought provoking day.

Be Inspired! Lecture: Dr Anna Tarrant – Becoming a Future (research) Leader: a story of my academic journey

Dr Anna Tarrant, University of Lincoln, College of Social Science, School of Social and Political Science

In this presentation, Anna tells the story of her journey to an award of a UKRI Future Leaders Fellowship. These prestigious fellowships support researchers to make the transition from early to established career, as well as to internationalise their research. The development of the proposal required careful consideration, not only of the planned research, but also how the Fellow expects to develop their leadership in research. Anna therefore provides an overview of the planned study, ‘Following Young Fathers Further’ and its potential to advance theoretical, methodological and substantive agendas with real policy and practice implications for young fathers. She also considers the mechanisms for ensuring the success of the bid and how she plans to take this forward as her journey to leadership progresses.

  • Tuesday 3rd March 2020
  • Lecture 6pm
  • Wine Reception 7pm
  • Minerva Building – Jackson Lecture Theatre

Anna Tarrant is an Associate Professor in Sociology based in the School of Social and Political Sciences, her research has broadly focused on men’s care responsibilities and support needs, particularly in low-income families. This work has been funded by a Leverhulme Trust Early Career Fellowship (2014-2018) and the Leeds Social Sciences Institute Impact Acceleration Account (2016-2017).

Anna is currently a steering group member for the Fatherhood Development Programme and for the Aspiring to be a ‘Child Friendly Lincoln’ initiative called ‘Children of Lincoln’ chaired by Dr Sue Bond-Taylor.
