Call for papers: Nordic Migration Research conference, RE:MIGRATION – New perspectives on movement, research, and society, University of Copenhagen, Denmark, 17-19 August 2022. Deadline: 4 April, 2022.
The term RE: – familiar from the subject lines of email threads – means regarding or in response to, and as such RE:MIGRATION is an invitation to reflect on key questions in migration studies in the current moment as interventions in an ongoing conversation. However, as a prefix, re- also introduces a temporality. It can speak both to a fresh start – rebuilding or reimagining – and to inevitable repetition. It therefore also invites us to consider migration not as singular or exceptional, but as part of the very rhythm of social life across the globe.
