Call for Papers: Immigration Reform and Beyond? The 5th Conference on Immigration to the US South

Immigration Reform and Beyond? The 5th Conference on Immigration to the US South

October 23-25, 2014 Location: University of Florida, Gainesville, Florida.

The 5th Conference on Immigration to the US South (formerly Conference on Immigration to the Southeast) calls for papers/panels for a multidisciplinary meeting on immigration to the US South. We also invite papers/panels that engage in comparative analysis of other regions and/or bring in transnational and global perspectives. Now that comprehensive immigration reform is back on the legislative agenda, we especially welcome presentations that promote an understanding of short-term and long-term challenges of immigration reform with an emphasis on finding practical and realistic policy alternatives. Because one of this conference's goals is to heighten the exchanges between our academic and community participants, we encourage presentations/panels that include interactive strategies to support this aim.

The conference is co-sponsored by the University of Florida’s Center for Latin American Studies and the Program for Immigration, Religion, and Social Change (PIRSC); Kennesaw State University Center for Conflict Management; the Jesuit Social Research Institute (JSRI) of Loyola University; and the Centro de Investigaciones Sobre America del Norte of the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de Mexico.

Proposal deadline: March 31, 2014 For proposals, submit abstracts online here.
