 CSCL is the hub for migration studies at Stony Brook University. Migration studies is an interdisciplinary field which draws on anthropology, history, economics, law, sociology, postcolonial studies, and trauma studies. Our research group is devoted to promoting diversity on campus and to understanding migrations – a major factor shaping the world in which we live.
