***Call for papers for a panel on Rural-Rural Migration at the upcoming American Anthropological Association annual meeting to be held in Washington DC, Nov 30-Dec 4, 2005.****
We are seeking three more papers on the topic of rural-to-rural migration in the developing world for a panel we are proposing for the 2005 AAAs. While much recent anthropological research has focused on rural-to-urban migration and international migration, rural-to-rural migration remains understudied by many. Our panel hopes to look at rural-rural migration in historical and ethnographic perspective, and to use papers from a wide variety of case studies from different parts of the world. We currently have a paper on Vietnam and one on Indonesia. We would ideally like additional papers that highlight case studies from South Asia, Africa or Latin America.
The deadline for panel submissions is April 1, 2005. Thus, we would like to get any indications of interest ASAP, and paper abstracts no later than March 24. Please send an email indicating your interest and a proposed paper topic to the e-mail address provided below. Additionally, if anyone would like to participate but cannot complete a paper in time, we would consider them for the role of discussant for the panel.
