CMD Colloquium Series

The CMD Colloquium Series takes place in Wallace Hall 165 with live streaming via Zoom. Each presentation will take place on Thursdays at noon.

Please note that Zoom registration is required for remote attendees. Registration links are included in the event details for each talk. 


As part of its regular roster of activities, the CMD offers two Colloquium Series every year, one during the spring semester and one in the fall. The purpose of this lecture series is to provide members of the Princeton Community—including faculty members and graduate and undergraduate students but also Princeton residents and local grassroots organizations—with an opportunity to obtain state-of-the-art information on issues related to migration and development. We include seasoned researchers but also young scholars conducting rigorous and timely work on a wide variety of relevant subjects. We also feature practitioners and activists whose views may enhance general knowledge and understanding of migration and development. Among other topics, the CMD Colloquium Series has showcased immigration and art in Florida and California; rural-urban migration in Latin America; the adaptation of refugees and displaced populations in Europe; the impact of residential segregation in the U.S.; and global economic trends affecting urbanization in various parts of the world.
