1st Call for Sessions


Nordic Migrations: Past & Present

October 26-27, 2007
Åbo Akademi University, Turku, Finland

The theme of the fourth annual ETMU Days is Nordic 
Migrations. The theme can be approached from following 
directions: ethnicity, international mobility, 
multiculturalism, integration, indigenous and national 
minorities, minority rights, citizenship, nationalism, 
racism, refugees, education, upbringing and comparable topics.

The keynote speakers at the conference are Professor Thomas 
Hylland Eriksen (University of Oslo), Professor Charles 
Westin (University of Stockholm), Dr Diana Mulinari 
(University of Lund), Dr Ali Najib (University of Uppsala), 
Dr Garbi Schmidt (University of Copenhagen), Professor Max 
Engman (Åbo Akademi University) and Professor Martin 
Scheinin (Åbo Akademi University).

The preferred language of the conference is English. 
Presentations are also possible in Finnish and Swedish.

Several workshops dealing with the above mentioned themes 
will be held at the conference.
Researchers, research groups and students of the field may 
suggest topics for these workshops. The suggestions should 
include the name of the workshop and an approx. 200-word 
introduction to the theme. Suggestions should also specify 
the language of the workshop to be used and are to be 
submitted by 30.03.2007.

We are also searching for co-ordinators for the workshops. 
Their task is to choose abstracts for their workshop and 
function as their chairperson. The co-ordinators themselves 
are also welcome to suggest topics for workshops. As each 
workshop is established, information about it will be added 
to the website of ETMU and abstracts for them can be 
suggested from that moment onwards.
