E-mail this message to a friend
Please find below a call for contributions to a new book series from
Liverpool University Press. We are keen to encourage proposals and
inquiries from linguists working on any aspect of language(s) and
migration, both for the book series and for the three edited volumes
described in more detail below. As editor of the volume 'Traces: the
Material Residues of Migration,' I am especially keen to hear from those
working on the linguistic residues of migratory movements.

Migrations and Identities (New Liverpool University Press Book Series)
Series editors: Eve Rosenhaft, David Dolowitz, Kirsty Hooper, Michael
Sommer, Johanna Waters
This new 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.
The editors are currently inviting contributions for three volumes from
scholars and practitioners (proposals to be submitted by 1 May 2010). You
will find more information about each on the series homepage

Staying: Obstacles to Migration (inquiries to Michael Sommer,
