Peter Kivisto (Sociology, Anthropology, and Social Welfare) has been involved in a research project on Iraqi refugees in two European cities-Helsinki and Rome-with University of Turku graduate student Vanja La Vecchia-Mikkola. He presented some of their findings at two conferences this past August, the first at the International Sociological Association's Forum in Buenos Aires and the second at the annual meeting of the American Sociological Association in Denver. The first published results of this project will appear in the Journal of Immigrant and Refugee Studies at the beginning of 2013, while a second article is in preparation.
In addition, he has a forthcoming chapter, "Historians and Sociologists Debate Transnationalism," that will appear in The Oxford Handbook of American Immigration and Ethnicity, edited by Ronald Bayor (Oxford University Press, forthcoming 2013), and the sixth edition of Illuminating Social Life will appear later this fall.
