The Mediterranean lies at the heart of migration studies in Europe and, currently, it is a focal point of large-scale human displacement. This is both a global and a local challenge with major effects on origin and destination countries in terms of society and politics, and with important implications for border and diversity policies, and geopolitical strategies.
The 2018 IMISCOE Annual Conference raises the theme “Europe, migrations and the Mediterranean: human mobilities and intercultural challenges” and will take place in Barcelona (July 2-4, 2018).
We welcome contributions from various disciplines, theoretical and empirically oriented, case-studies and comparative research, micro/meso and macro levels of analysis. We also encourage proposals to be interdisciplinary, intergenerational and gendered.
The forms for submitting a proposal can be found in the "user menu" once logged on (see upper right corner of your screen; next to the search field).
- Submissions of paper proposals should include a 250 word abstract. The IMISCOE conference committee will propose thematic panels based on the individual paper submissions that are accepted for presentation.
- Submissions for workshop proposals should include a max. 400 word overview of the rationale of the workshop.
- Proposals for a research panel should consist of 3 coherent and related papers. Submissions should include a 250 word abstract of the theme of the research panel, the author names, title and a max. 250 word abstract per paper.
The deadline for submitting proposals is Friday 15 December, 2017 (23:59 CET). All submissions should be made online via www.imiscoe.org. Applicants will be informed about acceptance of their submission by February 1st, 2018.
