Migrations and Identities

This series offers a forum and aims to provide a stimulus for new research into experiences, discourses and representations of migration from across the arts, humanities and social sciences. A core theme of the series will be the variety of relationships between movement in space – the ‘migration’ of people, communities, ideas and objects – and mentalities (‘identities’ in the broadest sense). It aims to address a broad scholarly audience, with critical and informed interventions into wider debates in contemporary culture as well as in the relevant disciplines. It will publish theoretical, empirical and practice-based studies by authors working within, across and between disciplines, geographical areas and time periods, in volumes that make the results of specialist research accessible to an informed, but not discipline-specific audience. The series is open to proposals for both monographs and edited volumes.
