We are looking for one or two more essays to round up a special issue on the topic of Transnational Mobilities in Nationalist Times. The essays will be considered for publication in the journal Transfers. We have already gathered a strong collection of essays but we have been presented with the opportunity to expand the range and depth of our investigation.

We are looking for essays that discuss the question of moving transnationally at a time of enhanced nationalism. By "transnational" mobility we mean movement of people, things, capital or ideas (see John Urry) across or beyond national boundaries. This can be moving from country to country (e.g. the mobility from Syria to Germany) or within the boundaries of a nation-state, in ways that are perceived by a significant portion of society to be a threat to the national project.

This is a last minute CfP, so scholars working in the humanities and social sciences and who are able to produce a full draft in the next two or three months are particularly welcome to send their proposals. 

We would like to receive proposals as soon as possible or by August 15. Please submit abstracts through this site, including a short bio.

For any questions, please contact the Editors.
