2003 Society for Economic Anthropology Meeting
Theme: Migration and Economy
The conference will focus on migration in all its facets, focusing on the ways in which people's movements in space affect, and are affected by, other social and economic institutions. The theme is intended to be as inclusive as possible of all types of population movement, of the past as well as the present, to provide a broad comparative perspective.
Cultural anthropologists, archeologists, historical anthropologists, as well as those from other social sciences interested in the study of migration, are invited to participate.
Population movements, especially in the form of movements across national boundaries, are currently the focus of broad academic and policy debates, about issues such as transnational migration and its implications for home and receiving countries; immigration policies and their effects; the dynamics of refugee movements; and so on.
The conference theme is intended to broaden the comparative framework, to place current debates and emphases within a context which considers both internal and international movements, and which considers historical as well as contemporary dynamics of mobility.
Papers are invited that consider mobility in socioeconomic context, addressing issues of the impact of migration on social institutions, as well as the question of how broader social and economic forces affect population mobility.
Some issues include:
Topics here could include:
Participants should plan to have their written papers ready for the

The Social, Behavioral, and Economic Sciences at NSF would like to alert you to the Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) Sites Program. The REU program supports active research participation by undergraduate students in any of the areas of science funded by NSF.
REU Sites typically support 8-12 students for 10-12 weeks during the summer. Sites are typically focused around a common discipline or theme and should show plans for moving undergraduates from a dependent to an independent researcher status. Recruitment should focus on underrepresented minorities and those students who may not have access to research experiences; typically at least half of the students come from outside the host institution.
The deadline for proposals is September 15, and the program
announcement is located at http://www.nsf.gov/pubs/2002/nsf02136/nsf02136.htm.
For additional information, please consult the website www.nsf.gov/reu or contact the Cross-Directorate Activities program -- Kristin Raymond (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Bonney Sheahan (email@example.com).
