Sixteenth Annual History in the Making Conference
March 4-5, 2011
The Immigrant Experience: The History of Communities in Transition
The history of immigration and emigration has created and influenced many communities around the world. The history of people in Diaspora can be explored through multidisciplinary research that illustrates our past, present, and future connectivity. This conference invites papers dealing with life stories of the immigrant/emigrant experience, transnational identities, the role of class, race, and ethnicity in Disapora communities, issues relating to commemoration and remembrance, the material and intangible culture that developed through these exchanges. Also of interest is the role of new media and communications (be they oral, written, visual, or digital) in the collection, distribution, and exhibition in the telling of these histories.
HIM 16 proposes to bring together graduate students, professional historians, and members of the broader academic and immigrant communities to discuss current research and activities on the subject of immigration, emigration, and the relationships between these individuals and their communities both at home and away. Proposals on a wide variety of topics, time-periods, and geographic regions are welcome and we gladly invite papers from scholars representing disciplines other than History.
Proposals for fifteen-minute presentations should not exceed 250 words and should be accompanied by a brief biography. The deadline for submissions is Friday, January 14, 2011. Please send email attachments to firstname.lastname@example.org. For further information, feel free to contact us at the same address or visit our website: http://www.himconference.ca
