The Expatriate Archive Centre created a Master’s Thesis Award to celebrate and reward talents who produce outstanding master’s theses that help to further understand the impact of expatriation on people’s lives. Expatriates as a group tend to ‘fall through the cracks’ when it comes to being represented in official government archives, as well as in global migration studies. We endeavour to shift and expand understandings of what an ‘expatriate’ is.
The submission deadline is 31 March 2021. The winner is announced 15 July 2021 and awarded 500 euros, followed by the promotion of the first-place thesis.
The Expatriate Archive Centre collects and preserves the life stories of expatriates worldwide for future research. We are located in The Netherlands but our outreach is global. We are here to serve researchers around the world!
