The Global Labor Migration Network has issued a CFP for its international conference, Global Labor Migration: Past and Present, to take place at the International Institute for Social History in Amsterdam, 20–22 June 2019.
Involving scholars and activists from diverse parts of the globe and drawing on a wide variety of disciplines—including history, sociology, anthropology, ethnic studies, women and gender studies, public health, law, and public policy—the global summit will bring attention to one of the world’s most pressing issues, generate scholarly dialogue and new research agendas, and propose policies that can improve conditions for migrants.
Applicants are encouraged to submit full panel proposals, including a chair, commentator, and no more than three papers; individual paper submissions will also be accepted. The conference will also include a range of presentation formats: brief papers, roundtables, and open conversations. Presentations on labor migration in Africa, Asia and South America are particularly encouraged.
Submissions are due by 1 July 2018 and should be made via the on-line submission form.
