Oral presentation at the Asian Conference on the Social Sciences
Dr. Noyori-Corbett attended the Asian Conference on the Social Sciences (ACSS) 2014, organized by the International Academic Forum, which was held between the 12th and 15th of June, 2014 in Osaka, Japan. She made an oral presentation of a paper titled “Transnational Advocacy Networks (TAN) as a Global Response to Human Trafficking in Japan”, which was co-authored with Dr. Moxley.
The ACSS consists of a variety of participants representing an extensive range of social science disciplines from all over the world. Within this global setting, all participants are asked to present diverse perspectives, look for common ground, and create a synergetic atmosphere. This conference will be the space where international social scientists from different backgrounds will be networking to develop multidisciplinary agendas to collaborate on in the future. By committing to this multidisciplinary collaboration within a global context, the ACSS assists social scientists in emphasizing the significant role they play in this field. As an international social work scientist, Dr. Noyori-Corbett enjoyed having the opportunity to meet scholars at this important conference. Her research areas are issues related to transnational advocacy networks addressing human trafficking, forced migration, feminized migration, and international social work.
Attending the International Summer School in Forced Migration at Oxford University
Dr. Noyori-Corbett was accepted for the three-week International Summer School in Forced Migration at Oxford University and awarded an Ed Cline Faculty Development Award, a Presidential International Travel Fellowship, along with additional support both from the School of Social Work and the College of Arts and Sciences for this trip. Selection for attendance at this prestigious, limited-enrollment meeting of international practitioners, policy makers, and researchers is highly competitive.
The International Summer School in Forced Migration at Oxford University offers an extremely rigorous, interdisciplinary and participative approach to critical learning and thinking on subjects consonant with its title (University of Oxford, 2014). To augment her expertise in the topical area she attended this intensive three-week assemblage of sessions from July 7th through 25th, 2014. While attending the summer school, Dr. Noyori-Corbett met participants from multiple countries with whom she collaborated about migration and human trafficking, as well as organizational responses to this social issue. Her attendance will have positive effects on the School of Social Work, which has recently initiated an educational program development in international social work. She also will be able to contribute to the global context within the social work discipline, as social workers need to collaborate globally to advance knowledge of social issues and better design responses and interventions.
