Iva Dodesvka and Maissam Nimer invite you to submit proposals for a planned Special Issue entitled Towards reflexivity in the study of mobility and diversity: theories, positionality and the political economy of knowledge production.You find the Call for Papers pdf here (316 KB) .

The proposed Special Issue answers to a call that the journal Migration Studies issued recently. “Reflexivity, data collection and categorization in Migration Studies” is one of the themes they particularly encourage.

The proposal is tentatively titled Towards reflexivity in the study of mobility and diversity: theories, positionality and the political economy of knowledge production. Its aim is threefold: (1) to investigate the political economy of knowledge production, centering on the linkage between policy and research in the era of “policy relevant” research on migration, as well as the influence of funding constellations on research agendas in neoliberal academia; (2) to offer theoretical discussion of the consolidation of integrationist, migranticizing and nation-centred paradigms that still dominate the field, putting the artificially delimited field of migration into the broader study of society; and (3) to propose alternative modes of knowledge production by examining (self)reflexive methodologies that privilege questions of positionality that scrutinise power relations and aim to de-pathologize mobility and diversity.

The editors are going to frame the proposal as the result of cooperation and reflections within the scope of IMISCOE's Standing Committee Reflexivities in Migration Studies.

Please feel free to reach out to the editors with any questions you may have.
