Announcements – Newsletter #4

    Women on the Move is pleased to announce the partnership with two new stakeholders: Dalia Leinartè and the French National Archives. A historian and current member of the United Nations Committee on the Elimination of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW), Dalia Leinartè was elected as one of the 100 most influential people in gender policy around the world. It is an honor to count on her support.The French National Archives are represented in the network by WG1 Chloé Goualc’h. A team of archivists is currently gathering a list of key collections on women migrants in the archives of France, which will be an invaluable addition to the repository of primary sources.

    Stellamarina Donato and Alexandra Yingst‘s project of a volume on Unknown stories of intermediaries in women’s migration: men, women and non-binary people has been accepted for a special issue of Journal of International Migration and Integration. Congratulations to our Early Career colleagues!

    WEMov’s Early Career Investigators (ECIs) continue to meet weekly on Wednesday mornings for  a writing group, in quiet collaborative research and academic work. A major objective of WEMov’s is to promote the participation of ECIs to secure long-lasting cooperation in a sustainable network on women and migration. Discover WEMov’s section for talent here. 

    Zoom party: A Zoom Cocktail Party will be held on 25 February at 7pm (CET). The theme is: “Dress as your landmark!” The idea is to dress as a famous migrant woman in history (as the ones gathered in on our map of landmarks), so don’t forget your hats, scarves and other costumy equipment. Stories about the migrant women represented and guessing games will be a great occasion to bond!
