New Book Series on Migration Studies, University of Illinois Press
University of Illinois Press announces a new series
STUDIES OF WORLD MIGRATIONS
Donna R. Gabaccia and Leslie Page Moch, editors
As the volume of persons “on the move” has again become more visible in recent years, debates over national policies toward migrating people have raised troubling social, economic and cultural questions worldwide. In this context, we see exciting opportunities to re-assess the scholarly study of migration.
The purpose of the book series is to publish and to call attention to the best and most innovative studies of human mobility and migration, whether written by historians, social scientists or humanists and regardless of chronological or geographical focus. By casting a wide net, we hope to encourage a more global, interdisciplinary and integrated understanding of how human mobility helped knit together the many regions of the world over time. At the same time we recognize that excellent national and local studies will continue to provide important building blocks for the construction of comparative and even global perspectives on how these interconnections change over the centuries.
The goals of the series are to encourage the study of mobile groups that are larger or smaller than national groups, the writing of comparative, transnational and diasporic studies, the study of migrations from interdisciplinary perspectives, and the creative blending of quantitative and qualitative methodologies. The series seeks to bring national studies into dialogue, to encourage world and global histories of migration, to place national studies of emigration and immigration in comparative perspective, and to provide a foundation for theoretical work on mobility.
The “Studies in World Migrations” series welcomes case studies, comparative work, and essay collections. The editors welcome inquiries and requests for information about the submission of proposals and manuscripts. Please contact the addresses below.
