About the Berkeley Interdisciplinary Immigration Workshop
In September 2003, Professor Irene Bloemraad (Sociology) established the Interdisciplinary Immigration Workshop with funding from the Institute for Research on Labor and Employment. While the Berkeley campus housed numerous individuals with an expertise on immigration and a few area centers with an interest in migrants from a specific region, there was no single forum to bring together scholars of migration and immigrant integration. The Workshop was founded to provide such a venue and to serve as a forum for intense, personalized discussion of members' current research project.
The goals of the workshop are three-fold:
- To provide an interdisciplinary forum for workshop members to get feedback on their immigration-related research projects;
- To serve as a venue for information dissemination among members; and
- To provide a forum for inviting guest speakers to talk about immigration matters to the Berkeley campus and interested community members.
