Veranstaltungsserie Veranstaltungsserie: Female Skilled Labor Migration Across the Globe

Female Skilled Labor Migration Across the Globe

Donnerstag, 15. Dezember 2022, 18:00 bis 20:00

For the hybrid kick-off event to the public lecture series “Female Skilled Labor Migration Across the Globe”, Prof. Eleonore Kofman (Middlesex University) and Prof. Parvati Raghuram (The Open University) will discuss how the field of labor migration research has evolved to consider the experiences of skilled female migrants. Despite women’s large share in global movements, the quintessential skilled migrant in many people’s minds is usually a white man, whereas women are often envisioned to follow their husbands in the latters’ global career endeavors. Prof. Kofman and Prof. Raghuram were among the first to draw attention to the neglect of women as skilled migrants . In this event,  they will discuss  whether or not women migrants have become more visible in public and academic discourses and how scholarship could profit from including a spotlight on the Global South.
