The Power of Academic Mobility: Exploring Immigration, Institution, and Discipline

The movement of academic labour in a global landscape has received increasing attention by institutions, governments, and scholars. There has been limited focus on exploring academic mobility between the US and Canada. As such, this presentation explores immigration realities, institutional types, and disciplinary conventions that inform “movement”, particularly for early-career scholars.

As such, this presentation explores immigration realities, institutional types, and disciplinary conventions that inform “movement”, particularly for early-career scholars.
