[ Call for Papers | Applications ]

migrations & identities is a new journal published bi-annually by Liverpool University Press and starting with the first issue in the summer of 2008. The title represents a programme: The editors aim to interrogate notions of ‘identity’ while asking how the fact of mobility and displacement shapes understandings of self and the wider world, among both migrants and ‘host’ societies. By the same token, they seek to understand how ideas and concepts are transformed as they ‘migrate’ from one place and culture to another. The Call for Contributions is online at H|Soz|u|Kult.
We are now inviting proposals for contributions for the inaugural issue, to be published in the summer of 2008. We welcome both critical surveys considering how particular disciplines or fields of study have dealt with the relationship between migration and identity, and case studies which exemplify a self-conscious approach to the methodological issues it raises.
Your proposal should be for an article of 5-8,000 words, and should take the form of an abstract of no more than 300 words.
Please send abstracts to Mark Choonara at no later than 15th September 2007.
