EAC Thesis Award
The Expatriate Archive Centre (EAC) 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.
This page has all important information about the 2022 EAC Thesis Award. The submission deadline is 31 March 2022.
The winner will be announced 15 July 2022, followed by the promotion of the first-place thesis.
About the Thesis Award
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.
There are five jury members: two permanent and three guest jurors. Guest jurors are experts on the chosen competition topic and are selected by the EAC and the chairperson of the jury.
The EAC works with participating organisations in promoting the award and its winner. Partner organisations are promoted on the EAC website and on its social media channels.
The jury panel has chosen a winner for the 2021 EAC Thesis Award. Congratulations to Aaisha Zafar Islam of York & Ryerson Universities in Toronto, Canada!
