Call for papers: Standing committee “Reflexive Migration Studies” Panel-session for the 17th IMISCOE Annual Conference, Luxembourg, 30 June – July 2, 2020
The overall aim of this standing committee is to push forward a reflexive (and selfreflexive) perspective within migration studies. Investigating how this field has emerged as well as promoting reflexivity in current and future research involves questions on knowledge production, knowledge circulation and knowledge utilization. Our endeavour is a multi-faceted one: It tackles the embeddedness of the field in wider societal (power) relations and the risk to reproduce hegemonic structures. Hence, studying knowledge production cannot be separated from studying eurocentrism, situated positions of researchers, or contested public debates on “truth” or “fake-news”. Studying knowledge circulation requires examining patterns of knowledge utilization in policy, politics, or state institutions. Equally important is to analyse the transfer of migration-related knowledge produced by other actors, like mass media, so-called migrants themselves, civil society actors, international organizations, or social science disciplines.
We invite abstracts identifying such a particular challenge and proposing ideas to address it. Please send your abstract of up to 250 words, a title and institutional affiliation to Janine Dahinden (firstname.lastname@example.org), Andreas Pott (email@example.com) and Anna-Lisa Müller (firstname.lastname@example.org). Deadline for application: 10 November 2019
