The Department of History at the University of York, UK, announces that it will be holding a 3 day conference, entitled 'Removing Peoples: Forced Migration in the Modern World (1850-1950)'. The conference will take place between the 20 and 22 of April, 2006, at the King's Manor, York. The conference will be concerned with the forcible removal of people groups across the world, one of the most striking phenomena to come out of the modern period. The focus will be on the course, contexts, causes and consequences of such enforced migrations, incorporating examples from Australia to Mexico - specifically, the conference will seek to address the question of why this phenomenon was limited to the century between 1850 and 1950. Speakers include guests from all over the world who will form 7 panels discussing various aspects of forced migration, centering on war and colonialism. The conference organisers welcome any who would like to participate, on the understanding that they undertake to pay their own expenses. For further information on the conference or to fill in a participation form, we invite you to visit the website.
