CFP: Immigration, Integration, and Invasion

Dear readers, the University of London has a call for papers for its HistoryLab Annual Postgraduate Conference. This year’s theme is “950th Anniversary of 1066: A Millenium(ish) of Immigration, Integration, and Invasion.” Although it looks to the Norman invasion of the British isles as a starting point, the conference encourages a broad range of contributions that touch generally on the themes of migration and culture in an historical context, which may be a useful forum for scholars of borderlands. The organizers invite proposals for three-person panels, they welcome interdisciplinary perspectives, studying all geographic areas. A list of suggested topics includes:

  • Geographies and patterns of migration
  • Colonial emigration
  • Immigration for the purposes of labor
  • Forced emigration
  • Nation building, national identities, and nationalism
  • Experiences of immigrant communities
  • Globalization and international trade patterns
  • Gender, race, and religion
  • Diasporic communications and networks of influence

For more information, email: ihrhistorylab@gmail.com with “HistoryLab Conference” in the subject line. You can also follow the lab on Twitter: @IHRHistoryLab

The deadline to apply is April 1, 2016. Good luck!
