Migration Scholar Collaborative

Migration Scholar Collaborative (MiSC) is a hub for scholars in the humanities and humanistic social sciences to present their work to journalists, lawmakers and thought leaders. We strive to decriminalize migration and open wider pathways to legal immigration in the US.

Essays, reviews, and editorials written by members are often published in major newspapers, news sites, journals, magazines, and more. Below is a list of some of their most recent pieces.

Every two weeks, we share our newsletter—Migration Archives—to help you situate news on migration and immigration in historical contexts so that we may all understand how we got here and what remains to be done.
