Call for Papers* ­ Arab World Diasporas and Migrations

Georgetown Universityıs Center for Contemporary Arab Studies invites abstracts for scholarly papers to be presented at a two-day symposium on March 21 and 22, 2011 dealing with the subject of migrations and diasporas to, from, and within the Arab world. We define the Arab world geographically and welcome contributions about non-Arab communities in the Arab world.

The goal of the symposium is for scholars to present original unpublished research. Presenters will be asked to submit their revised papers for publication in an edited volume. Please submit a formal abstract (no more than 500 words) and a CV (no longer than 4 pages) by email to Ms. Maggie Daher ( The abstract should also include information on methodology and sources.

Deadline for receipt of material is August 15, 2010. Participants will be notified of their acceptance by September 15, 2010. Travel and hotel expenses will be paid for invited participants.

The themes we seek to address include, but are not limited to the following:

§ Migrations to and from the Arab world in historical perspectives (18^th -20^th centuries).

§ Twentieth and twenty-first century migrations into and from the Arab world to Europe, North America, Latin America, Africa, Asia and Australia.

§ Patterns of voluntary and forced migrations within the Arab world including those driven by famine, conflict, ethnic or religious persecution, and economic, environmental, labor and educational factors.

§ Incentives and effects of emigration (labor markets,
environmental pulls and pushes, educational opportunities, changing social structures/customs, health, tourism, etc).

§ Integration of diaspora communities into host
communities/countries (religious, cultural, social, political or economic, etc).

§ Cultural production by and about diaspora and migrant communities
