Post slightly out of character. I have just been informed that the Social Sciences Division of the University of Oxford has awarded me a Teaching Excellence Award for ‘outstanding contribution towards teaching on the MSc in Migration Studies‘.
I really enjoyed to work with colleagues on the course last year, particularly the almost daily contact with students. The fortnightly discussion class on critical debates in migration studies, the lectures and tutorials have thought me a great deal. It is really rewarding to receive a recognition for the effort I have put into teaching. this makes me even more keen to teach the course on Ethnographies of diaspora and transnationalism next term with my colleague Dr Mette Berg.
