BSA Race, Ethnicity and Migration Stream semi-plenary & CFP update

We would like to remind everyone about the BSA Race, Ethnicity and Migration Stream CFP for the BSA Annual Conference 2015: Societies in Transition: Progression or Regression. Glasgow, 15-17 April 2015.

We (Ipek and Aaron) submitted a proposal for a Stream Sub-Plenary earlier in the year. There are only 12 stream sub-plenaries allocated during the BSA annual conference and we are pleased to let you know that our proposal was accepted. It will be on ‘Race, Ethnicity and Racism in Scotland’ and the speakers will be Professor Satnam Virdee (Glasgow) and Dr Gina Netto (Heriot-Watt). We look forward to a great event that not only addresses our stream and study group themes, but engages with the host city and Scotland at a very interesting time – post-referendum. Hope you are able to attend. Date/Time/Room details TBC.
