EAC Thesis Award
In 2019 the Expatriate Archive Centre (EAC) is initiating a Master’s Thesis Award. We are keen to celebrate and reward talents who produce outstanding master’s theses that help to further understand the impact of expatriation on people’s lives.
The first award deadline has passed. Check this page soon for new information about the 2020 EAC Thesis Award.
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.
