The Conference on Immigration to the Southeast promotes the exploration of the challenges associated with immigration and migration, with an emphasis on finding practical and realistic solutions that stimulate economic growth and increase social strength. It also supports the new field of Critical Immigration Studies, defined as academic research that contributes to understanding and eliminating social inequality and injustice.
The Conference is co-sponsored by the Kennesaw State University Center for Conflict Management; the Consortium for Latino Immigration Studies at the University of South Carolina; and the Centro de Investigaciones Sobre America del Norte of the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de Mexico. Contributing sponsors include the Institute for Global Initiatives; the KSU Shaw Industries Endowed Chair of History; and the KSU Maya Heritage Community Project.
Special Notice: The conference will host an open roundtable discussion on the establishment of a migration/immigration association for the Southeast. Given the tremendous economic, political, and human complexities concerning human migration and immigration into the Southeast of the United States, do we need to establish an academic organization or association that would meet yearly, or every two years, to keep pace with the changes and solidify communication among researchers? If so, where will the next conference be located and who will help with organizational leadership?
