New year, new job! I am absolutely thrilled to be joining the School of Sociology & Social Policy at the University of Nottingham! I really look forward to working with such formidable colleagues and meeting my new students!
Further updates will follow soon…
Hello there. I haven’t been updating the news section of this blog in a while – sorry!
I am planning some major website ‘refurbishment’ in Summer 2018.
In the meantime, you can find my latest publications here.
Also, you can find more details about my project, events and other activities by following my Twitter account @adangeloUK.
It’s a busy life (!), but I hope I will get back soon for more updates.
Middlesex University is launching a new MA Migration, Society and Policy
With migration regularly at the top of the European and global agenda, the need for skilled professionals who can make sense of the raw data, grasp complex policy systems and assess their impact on contemporary societies is more apparent than ever.
This master’s degree offers a contemporary and interdisciplinary focus on migration and related socio-political and policy issues, combining theoretical, methodological and practice-oriented training relevant to a number of career routes in academia, policymaking, the public sector, the community sector and NGOs.
It features a wide range of study options from disciplines such as law, politics and sociology, as well as incorporating opportunities to undertake field trips, placements and internships, both locally and internationally.
For further information visit the MA Migration, Society and Policy or contact the programme leader (Alessio D’Angelo – firstname.lastname@example.org)
University of Greenwhich – 11 January 2016
A training course with Dr Alessio D’Angelo; Dr Louise Ryan; Dr Cecile Emery. The event is promoted by the British Sociological Association (BSA) Social Network Analysis Group (SNAG).
The European Toolkit for Schools is now online! It gives access to measures and resources from many EU countries to support effective and high quality education. The toolkit follows 2 years of work of the European Commission Working Group on Early School Leaving, which included representatives and experts from across Europe.
Really glad to have played my part in this exciting process as an advisor to the Working Group – and looking forward to further developments!
