Perry World House is launching a call for applications designed to encourage collaboration between Penn faculty and Perry World House. Specifically, Perry World House is seeking applications from Penn standing faculty members from any school or department to create a workshop that will advance knowledge and policy engagement in the global space. Workshops should be 1-2 days and PWH can provide support up to $20,000. We are especially, but not exclusively, interested in applications that fit within one of Perry World House’s two research themes.
On May 14 and 15, 2020, The University of Utah’s Asia Center and Department of Sociology will sponsor a mini-conference in Salt Lake City, Utah, for social scientists researching migration and immigrant incorporation in Asia and overseas Asian populations. Through this conference we seek to advance knowledge in the field by bringing together communities of scholars, such as Demographers, Sociologist members of ASA’s Asia and Asian America Section and the Section on International Migration, as well as international scholars in the Asian Population Association and other professional communities.

Summit organizers are accepting applications for two types of poster presentations at the 2020 Summit: (1) scientific posters describing a completed or ongoing study relevant to one or more of the Summit themes; (2) informational posters that display and describe a service, program, or data resource provided by an organization, federal partner, advocacy group, or service provider. We encourage scientific poster abstract submissions from graduate students, postdoctoral individuals, and early-stage investigators, especially those from underrepresented populations in the biomedical workforce, on a topic that identifies a significant research gap and is relevant to one of the Summit themes.
