Translocations: The Irish Migration

Translocations: The Irish Migration, Race and Social Transformation Review

Volume 3/ Issue 1/ 2008

Since the mid-1990s, Ireland has experienced, probably for the first time in its modern history, economic prosperity, labour shortages and net inward migration. These developments have brought together debate and research covering a number of related areas. While not entirely new, these areas include the changing nature of ‘Irish’ identity and the explicit dialectical radicalization of ‘Irishness’ and ‘otherness’. The result has been an explosion of public and academic debates on the question of social changes due to large-scale immigration and integration policies. Translocations is a peer-review journal which aims to map out these themes and construct a dynamic network of those academics and policy makers who are interested in contributing to these intersecting debates within the specificity of the Irish context.

New Journal: migrations & identities

Call for papers

migrations & identities is a new journal published bi-annually by  
Liverpool University Press. The title represents a programme: We aim  
to interrogate notions of ‘identity’ while asking how the fact of  
mobility and displacement shapes understandings of self and the wider  
world, among both migrants and ‘host’ societies.  By the same token,  
we seek to understand how ideas and concepts are transformed as they  
‘migrate’ from one place and culture to another.

Multi- and interdisciplinary in both conception and management,  
migrations & identities aims to cover the widest possible range of  
places, periods and methods, subject only to a shared curiosity and  
enthusiasm about the possibilities of working at the interface  
between the investigation of the material conditions of migration  
processes and the study of ideas and subjectivities. Continue reading
