3) CFP: Echoes of Migrations: Memories and Representations of Migrants (19-21th Century)
Lisbon, November 8-9, 2012
Description: The conference Echoes of Migrations: Memories and Representations of Migrants (19-21th Century), organized by the Institute of Contemporary History (FCSH-UNL), aims to identify and compare the various models of representation associated with migration and the different types of actors involved in the making of the modern diaspora.

We seek answers to a number of questions: How are migrants’ narratives collectively reconstructedover time in the national memories of the host and origin countries? How are migrantsrepresented in monuments and museum exhibitions dedicated to issues of migration? How do literature and film portray immigration and emigration? The conference will focus on abroad chronological period (the late 19th century to the present), which covers mass migrations cycles, in order to examine the constructed representations of migratory phenomena in various socio-economic, political, and geographic settings. [see website for further details].

Deadline for submission: June 15, 2012
