International Workshop on Men and Migration in Contemporary Europe

From the 9th to the 10th of June, 2016, the Centre for European Research at the University of Gothenburg (CERGU) will host an international workshop on men and migration in contemporary Europe.
The presence of male migrants in European society is currently one of the most discussed topics, especially in the context of the recent flow of refugees into Europe and its consequences for both new migrants and European citizens. However, men and masculinities issues are still rarely discussed in migration studies and the majority of the (gendered) migration scholarship focuses on women’s issues (Charsley and Wray 2015).

Therefore, the main aim of the workshop is to strengthen interdisciplinary discussion of men and migration studies centred on the multidimensional and intersectional aspects of male experiences and identities, migrant men’s practices, their roles in their host societies and encounters between varied migrant and non-migrant masculinities. During the workshop, we will particularly address the issues of migrant men’s vulnerability, discrimination (in the labor market, state institutions and in the public sphere), fatherhood models and the issues connected to masculinities models and sexuality.
This workshop will contribute to research areas on masculinities and migration in three fundamental ways. First, we will discuss methodological and theoretical challenges in the field. Second, presenters will offer insight on the most current trends in research on men and migration. Finally, the workshop itself will promote international collaboration leading to future research projects on men and migration.
