Call for paper


Gender history and international migration history have been in recent years two very active and exciting fields of study. Despite some recent works, they still appear however to produce distinct narratives of history. This conference aims to facilitate cross-fertilisation of gender and migration studies. Gender allows us to take a new look at the concepts used by historians of migration, and to revise some of the usual themes. The migrant's experience is structured by gender, so are the memories and images of migration. Migration policies often differ according to gender, as do migrants' political and social activities. In turn, migration can affect the ways in which gender is defined and acted upon, within the host as well as the home society.
Submissions made by doctoral students and recent graduates are especially encouraged as well as proposals addressing more specifically one of the themes below:
