we have the pleasure to announce the International Conference «Central Asian Migrants in Western Europe», dedicated to the study of Post-soviet Central Asian migrant communities in Western European countries since 1991.
This event was made possible by the generous support of the Municipality of Lagoa – Algarve (Portugal).
We invite contributions from anthropologists, sociologists, geographers, historians, demographers and others; we welcome papers both from senior researchers and from scholars who are completing their dissertation or have just received their PhD. There is a limited number of places.
Abstracts of up to 300 words and a short bio (50 words) should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org by October 20. Decisions will be made by October 31. We expect all speakers to submit their revised papers for publication in an edited collection or special journal issue by July 2020.
The language of the conference is English.
Accommodation: the organization has a limited number of places to offer (two nights in a twin room); priority will be given to PhD students, post-docs, and scholars and researchers from the region – one per accepted paper. Unfortunately, we are not able to provide any support with travel expenses.
