Emanuel Deutschmann: A Beacon in Transnational Migration StudiesThis year’s recipient is Emanuel Deutschmann, Assistant Professor in Sociological Theory at the University of Flensburg.
In a world increasingly defined by movement and migration, understanding the complexities of transnational mobility is paramount. This year, the spotlight shines on Emanuel Deutschmann, the deserving recipient of the 2023 Zetterberg Prize in Sociology. Awarded by Uppsala University's Department of Sociology, this accolade recognizes young researchers who have made significant strides in their field.
Deutschmann, currently an Assistant Professor at the University of Flensburg, has been instrumental in advancing the study of transnational migration. His innovative network-analytical approach offers a fresh perspective on the social dimensions of regional integration on a global scale. Furthermore, his commitment to open-access knowledge is evident in his creation of a unique dataset on transnational mobility.
His book, "Mapping the Transnational World," published by Princeton University Press in 2021, stands as a testament to his profound contributions. Drawing from his own experiences and academic sojourns across Europe and North America, Deutschmann's work has not only influenced academic circles but has also ignited global conversations, embodying the spirit of Hans L. Zetterberg.
