CALL FOR WORKSHOPS – DEADLINE DECEMBER 1ST, 2013

The 17th Nordic Migration Research Conference:

FLOWS, PLACES AND BOUNDARIES – MIGRATORY CHALLENGES AND NEW AGENDAS
COPENHAGEN UNIVERSITY, 13TH - 15TH AUGUST, 2014

During the past decades, migratory flows have diversified and intensified. National policy frameworks respond to the migration flows with both openness and closure and discussions on how to manage migration are as pertinent as ever. Notions of integration and belonging are challenged by new migration dynamics and by new forms and scopes of mobility. The global quest for natural resources has also opened up new venues for migration, e.g. in Greenland, and environmental changes and challenges have led to new population movements. These examples illustrate the complexity of migration-related issues and the 17th Nordic Migration Conference wishes to engage in these topics, and situate the migratory challenges and new agendas in a Nordic context.

The conference will attract scholars of migration with different disciplinary backgrounds. They will present and discuss their research on economic, political, social and cultural impetuses for, and impacts of, migration.

Confirmed keynote speakers:
- Professor Thomas Hylland Eriksen, Oslo University, Norway.
- Professor Nicolas de Genova, University of Chicago, USA.
- Economist Philippe Legrain, London School of Economics, UK
- Professor Claudia Strauss, Pitzner College, USA.

Workshops: We encourage proposals on migration-related issues in the widest range of disciplines. Although it is not mandatory that papers be related to the conference theme, workshop proposals that do so are particularly welcome.

Workshop proposals (maximum 300 words) can be submitted until December 1st 2013. Please note that we welcome both proposals containing a full list of participants and proposals being open for more participants.

Send submissions to nordicmigration-conf at sfi.dk<mailto:nordicmigration-conf at sfi.dk>


Time and place: The conference will be held in Denmark, 13th - 15th August, 2014, at the Centre for Advanced Migration Studies, University of Copenhagen.
