Call for Panels and Papers

The organizers call for proposals for panels and papers. We are particularly interested in panels displaying a multi-disciplinary orientation and/or bringing together different perspectives on migration and/or rethinking societies from a migration perspective in line with the conference topic. However, there are no thematic restrictions. The call is open to all panels and papers dealing with any further themes related to migration, mobility, and integration. Selected peer-reviewed contributions will be published in an open access yearbook with the Austrian Academy of Sciences Press. Again, contributions focusing on the overall theme of the conference will receive special consideration. Proposals for panels and papers can be submitted either in English or in German.

Please send all proposals to by 28 January 2022.
