As patterns of Caribbean migration shift and new trends emerge, the need arises for scholarship that reflects the nuanced experiences of Caribbean migrants. A comparative approach to Caribbean migration research, which emphasizes the different experiences of migration - based on country or region of origin, socioeconomic background, education, and destination society, among other factors – is necessary.
We are seeking original scholarly articles from a broad range of disciplines for this edited volume on comparative migration. The purpose of this book is to present innovative research that illustrates the relevance of context through the use of comparative research. Diverse theoretical and methodological frameworks are welcome. We seek papers that include, but are not limited to the following topics:
- Transnational migration
- Return migration
- Immigration status and issues of legality
- Professional versus low-skilled migrants
- The role of gender in the migration experience
- Relationships among Caribbean people in the Diaspora
Please send a one-page abstract and a brief CV no later than September 15, 2006 to firstname.lastname@example.org, with “Comparative Caribbean Migration” in the subject line.
