Call for Papers: Comparative Caribbean Migration

Migration has become a central theme in dialogue on Caribbean social,
political, and economic life. The dominance of movement from the Caribbean
to the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom has produced a wealth
of literature on Caribbean migration to these societies and the development
of communities within them.  As patterns shift and new trends emerge the
need arises for scholarship that reflects the nuanced experiences of
Caribbean migrants.  A comparative approach to Caribbean migration
research, which emphasizes the different experiences of migration - based
on country or region of origin, socioeconomic background, education, and
destination society, among other factors - is necessary.

We are seeking original scholarly articles from a broad range of
disciplines for this edited volume on comparative migration. The purpose of
this book is to present innovative research that illustrates the relevance
of context through the use of comparative research.  Diverse theoretical
and methodological frameworks are welcome. We seek papers that include, but
are not limited to the following topics:

-       Transnational migration
-       Return migration
-       Deportation
-       Employability
-       Immigration status and issues of legality
-       Professional versus low-skilled migrants
-       The role of gender in the migration experience
-       Relationships among Caribbean people in the Diaspora

Please send a one-page abstract and a brief CV no later than September15, 2006
