Syracuse University’s Jamie Winders Recognized by the Center for Migration Studies

Jamie Winders, professor of geography and the environment at Syracuse University in New York received the Excellence in International Migration Scholarship Award from the Center for Migration Studies. Dr. Winders, who also serves as associate provost for faculty affairs at Syracuse University, was honored for her contributions to the International Migration Review, the center’s flagship journal which she edited from October 2017 until June 2022.

Professor Winders’ research focuses on four themes: (1) the design, regulation and social impacts of emerging technologies, especially autonomous systems and artificial intelligence, (2) international migration and the politics of belonging, (3) racial formations and dynamics, and (4) the politics of social reproduction. She is the author of Nashville in the New Millennium: Immigrant Settlement, Urban Transformation, and Social Belonging (Russell Sage Foundation, 2013).

“Working with the International Migration Review was an amazing experience. It’s a foundational journal in migration studies with this really powerful history of using research to improve the lives of migrants,” Dr. Winders said. “We’re in a moment where migrants in so many places are under attack and where the myths about migration are doing a lot of damage in the world around us. The International Migration Review and the Center for Migration Studies both play really crucial roles in speaking truths about migration, about its impacts. This work is so important in this moment, to speak these truths and to use them to counter these myths that we’re hearing.”

Winders holds a bachelor’s degree and a Ph.D. from the University of Kentucky. She also earned a master’s degree from the University of British Columbia.
