    New Project: Young Migrant Women in Secondary Education

    Promoting integration and mutual understanding through dialogue and exchange

    The Mediterranean Institute of Gender Studies (MIGS) has received a grant from the European Commission European fund for the Integration of Third-country Nationals to implement a transnational project entitled “Young Migrant Women in Secondary Education – Promoting integration and mutual understanding through dialogue and exchange”.  The project has a duration of 18 months.

    Project Partners:

    1. Centre of Research in Theories and Practices that Overcome Inequalities (CREA)  – University of Barcelona (Spain)

    2. Centre for Rights, Equalities and Social Justice (CRESJ)- Institute of Education, University of London (UK)

    4. Euro-Mediterranean Centre for Educational Research (EMCER)- University of Malta, (Malta)
      http://www.um.edu.mt/emcer/about

    Aims and objectives:

    The main aim of the project is to explore how the intersection of gender and ethnic stereotyping produces forms of exclusion and marginalization as experienced by young migrant women in the context of secondary education, and to identify the gaps between mainstream integration measures and young migrant women’s needs using a critical gender perspective.  The project also aims to develop policy recommendations aimed at improving the quality of existing structures and services in the educational context to reflect the different needs of young migrant women.

    CALL FOR PAPERS “Demystifying Sex Work and Sex Workers”

    Special Issue for Wagadu, Journal of Transnational Women’s and Gender Studies, Edited by Susan Dewey, Ph.D. (University Studies, DePauw University)

    Sex workers throughout the world share a uniquely maligned mystique that simultaneously positions them as sexually desirable and socially repulsive.  In order to better understand how these processes function cross-culturally, this special issue of Wagadu invites papers focusing upon the everyday lives of sex workers, broadly defined as those who exchange sexual services for something of value.

    While recent years have witnessed a dramatic outpouring of feminist scholarship on sex work (Bernstein 2007; Day 2007; Doezema 2001; Kempadoo 2005, 1998; Kuo 2002; Munro and Della Giusta 2008), much of this literature unintentionally reinforces the social stigmatization of sex workers by depicting them solely through their income-earning activities.
