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. We welcome papers from all disciplinary angles from both academics and independent researchers concerned with this issue.

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

The conference organisers are: Professor Angela McCarthy, Dr Angela Wanhalla, and Associate Professor Jacqui Leckie.
