Call for Papers Workshop on Transnational Approaches to Historical Research Corinth, Greece, 21-22 June 2013 Transnational approaches as a means by which to develop and inform research are currently widely discussed amongst social scientists. Transnational approaches to the past offer a method of conducting historical research by focusing on links, flows and networks between places, organizations, groups and individuals. In doing so, they open up broader analytical possibilities for capturing phenomena whose range is subnational, supranational or multinational. We invite proposals discussing and debating the term transnationalism, elucidating the methodological issues a transnational perspective in historical research raises, and, highlighting its heuristic possibilities and limits. In view of our research on the history of the establishment of the Intergovernmental Committee for European Migration in the early post-World War II period, we especially welcome papers that focus on transnational approaches of: - International Organizations - the Cold War - intergovernmental or NGOs interventions in migration processes - processes defining the policy agenda worldwide - processes generating the knowledge needed to steer international efforts - generation of data on labour migration, labour market trends and their relationship to the world economy - the creation of networks of shared interests and concerns - the emergence of discursive and cognitive frameworks that legitimate the regulation of migration; the elaboration and selection of the terms, concepts and perceptions used to interpret and address migration The deadline for submitting proposals is 31 March 2013. The selection outcome will be announced by the end of March 2013. Researchers interested in participating in the workshop are requested to send their proposals to firstname.lastname@example.org. Proposals should be approximately 400 words in length and should include a short biographical note of max. 200 words. Participants should normally obtain support from their appropriate national agencies or from relevant international organizations. A limited number of participants may receive financial support from the organizers.
