Call for papers
Migration and integration have become key social phenomena shaping and reshaping the modern world. Different streams of migration have contributed considerably to changing (national) populations and perceptions about immigration, citizenship, and minority incorporation. One vital area in dealing with the challenges of immigrant integration is the educational sector. Schools, curricula, educational policies, teaching materials and public debates centred around questions of education have thus become important and often controversial topics in immigration societies.
The conference Educating for Migrant Integration - Integrating Migration into Education: European and North American Comparisons will address the interrelated questions of immigrant incorporation and education in a comparative framework, drawing on European and North American experiences. The focus may be contemporary or historical (1945 to the present). The main areas of interest for the conference will be:
The workshop is open to scholars in the Humanities and the Social Sciences in the widest sense (anthropology, education, ethnology, geography, history, law, political sciences, sociology). Abstracts for papers will be considered on a competitive basis. The number of speakers will be limited to 20 (plus external participants/audience). Half of the places will be reserved for younger scholars (advanced Ph.D. candidates and recent post-docs). The organizers will cover expenses for accommodation and food. Financial support to subsidize travel expenses can be applied for on an individual basis.
Submissions of abstracts (max. of 600 words) and a short biographical note (not more than two pages) including a list of (selected) publications are welcomed until May 15 2006. Papers are supposed to be circulated in advance and have to be received by September 7, 2004. Publication of the papers in an edited volume is intended.
