11th SIEF Congress – "Circulation" – Tartu, Estonia, 30.06.-04.07.2013
Call for Paper for the Panel "Re-migration and circulation: the European experience since 1945"
The panel aims to discuss re-migrations as a complex process of cultural transfer and transformation. It focuses mainly on cultural transmission, on strategies and practices of re-migrants, and ideologies and identities connected with re-migration in both actors´ and experts´ discourses.
International migrations are important research topics. However, the special topic of re-migration has not yet drawn any systematic cultural anthropological attention. Re-migrants are defined as persons returning as co-ethnic migrants "home" to the land of their origin after a long-term stay abroad. Though the topic of re-migration is very complex and heterogeneous, the various re-migrations seem to be united by a wish to contribute to changes by circulating knowledge and experience.
