Call for papers and panel proposals 11th IMISCOE Annual Conference
The 11th IMISCOE Conference welcomes contributions from scholars of various disciplines, on all aspects of migration, integration and ethnic studies. Submissions directly related to the conference theme are welcome as well as those on other topics in the broad field of migration studies. The conference is open to IMISCOE network members and non-members alike. Individual papers as well as specific types of panels (all 90 minutes) can be submitted:
• Papers. Submissions of papers should include a 250 word abstract and either a 3-4 page summary or a full paper. The IMISCOE conference committee will propose thematic panels based on the individual paper submissions that are accepted for presentation.
• Research panels. Proposals for a research panel should consist of 4 or 5 coherent and related papers. Submissions should include a 250 word abstract of the theme of the panel, the author names, title and a max. 250 word abstract per paper. All research panels are recommended to also appoint a discussant.
• Workshops. This can involve book workshops or policy workshops. The aim of such workshops can be to discuss research or rather to shape a future research agenda. Book workshops should involve a broader panel of participants to discuss and reflect on a book. Policy workshops should explicitly engage people beyond academia, such as policymakers, politicians or NGO representatives. Submissions for workshops should include a max. 400 word overview of the rationale of the workshop and the persons (academic as well as non-academic) taking part in the workshops.
