Outstanding Academic Title 2017

12 January 2018

We very proud announce that the Imiscoe open access book “Contested Childhoods: Growing up in Migrancy”, edited by Marie Louise Seeberg and Elzbieta Gozdziak was selected by Choice magazine as an ‘Outstanding Academic Title’ for the year 2017!

From the review: “In 10 extremely well-written chapters, these authors explore patterns of international migration, the politics and policies that drive them, and, most importantly, the effect of this transitory narrative on the identities of the migrant children themselves. … This compelling text is a must read for anyone no longer satisfied with being merely a spectator in the migrant crisis unfolding in front of the world; it will help propel readers toward informed action. Summing Up: Essential. All levels/libraries.” (J. C. Altman, Choice, Vol. 55 (1), September, 2017)”.

CONGRATULATIONS to the authors and editors!
