CFP: Migrant Cross-Cultural Encounters

Migrant Cross-Cultural Encounters: A Multidisciplinary Conference

24-26 November 2014
University of Otago, Dunedin, New Zealand

Historical and contemporary global migration involves a range of cross-cultural encounters, but how are these interactions discussed, debated, and defined? This three-day multidisciplinary conference seeks to examine past and present migrant encounters with other peoples in a diverse range of locations. Papers from various disciplinary angles are welcome from a variety of themes and from any historical period or region.

Themes may include but are not limited to:

  • Race, ethnicity and citizenship
  • War, migration and cross-cultural contact
  • Labour, migration and cross-cultural encounters
  • Empire, contact and mobility
  • Gender, migration, and cross-cultural encounters

Please provide:

  • a title
  • a 250-word abstract of your paper
  • brief biographical information (including institutional affiliation and contact details).

All proposals will be assessed after the deadline of Friday 11 July 2014. If you require an earlier acceptance please advise us.

Proposals or requests for further information should be sent to:

The conference is sponsored by four key multidisciplinary research hubs in the Division of Humanities at the University of Otago:
