Global REM (Race, Ethnicity, Migration) is designed to strengthen an existing cluster of faculty and the departments, programs and interdisciplinary research centers with which they are associated, extending the contributions they already make to the diversification of research and teaching at the University of Minnesota. Minnesota has long nurtured scholarly expertise and teaching on race, ethnicity and migration. (The birthplace of immigration history in the 1920s and home of pioneering American Studies Department for over a half century, the first REM initiative organized a seminar and conference in the late 1990s.) U.S.-focused in its earlier iterations, new hires have internationalized scholarship on REM across the disciplines.
Events are cosponsored with the Institute for Global Studies and arranged throughout the fall and spring semesters. If you would like to be notified of Global REM events, please send a message to ihrc@umn.edu.
