The Oxford Migration Studies Society (OMSS) and TORCH Migration and Mobility Network invite you to the 2018 interdisciplinary migration conference:
"Crossing borders / Crossing disciplines: Rethinking Inclusion, Exclusion, and Human Mobility".
Please join us on 17 & 18 May in Worcester College in order to discuss migration from a myriad of perspectives.
Human mobility is accompanied by processes of inclusion and exclusion. Whether in large-scale economic processes or face-to-face encounters, navigating ethnic, cultural, religious, economic, or linguistic differences resulting from migration and mobility can be challenging for states, societies, and individuals alike. What are the various scales and moments at which processes of inclusion and exclusion come to the fore? Who includes and who excludes? Where do processes of inclusion and exclusion take place? What effects do they have at the individual, regional, national or international levels?
This conference aims to generate new inter- and multi-disciplinary insights and ideas on the theme of inclusion/exclusion.
NOTE: The call for abstracts is still open until 20 April. We welcome abstracts from researchers at all academic levels addressing processes of inclusion/exclusion in relation to human migration and mobility from all disciplinary perspectives including, but not limited to:
· Law and Socio-Legal Studies
· Theology and Religious Studies
· Literature and Cultural Studies
· Development Studies
· Sociology and Anthropology
· Linguistics and Languages
· Environmental Studies
· Geography (Physical and Human)
· Performing Arts and Musicology
· Public Health
· Politics and Political Science
Please send your abstract or other inquiries to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The conference will include a keynote speech, 5 panels and a closing address. A sandwich lunch will be provided on Friday.
