Diaspora, Indigenous, and Minority Education

Diaspora, Indigenous, and Minority Education: An International Journal.

Special Issue on Migration, Religion, and Education.

Call for Papers


Diaspora, Indigenous, and Minority Education: An International Journal invites contributions for an upcoming guest edited volume on Migration, Religion, and Education. This special issue invites papers from a diversity of international perspectives and country contexts, and from a variety of education disciplines, to address the theme of migration, religion, and education. Education should be considered broadly to include all stages / levels of formal education, as well as non-formal and informal education.

The continuing salience of religion as a fundamental basis for identity and belonging, and as an on-going focal point of political struggles across the world has shaken to its core the narrative projecting a final « global triumph » of liberal democracy in the post-Cold War era. Religion still matters a great deal, both publicly and privately. And religion has always had important linkages to migration and cultural diversity. As Bramadat (2009) indicates, religion is quite powerfully related to many of the most complex features of migration today; it is often involved in conflicts driving people to flee their home countries, it is used in political resistance struggles (both in the « homeland » and the diaspora), and it very typically serves as a foundation for the social structures of newly arrived minority communities in host societies. Each of these illustrations has important connections to education; religiously persecuted refugees may utilize their cultural (and specifically religious) capital to their advantage in schooling in host societies that privilege rather than severely disadvantage their faith traditions, diasporic communities may use non-formal and informal education methods to mobilize their members around a religiously framed cause, churches and mosques may create schools within immigrant neighborhoods to serve as anchors for the passing on of tradition as well as the cultivation of ethno-specific forms of social capital.

This special issue invites papers from a diversity of international perspectives and country contexts, and from a variety of education disciplines, to address the theme of migration, religion, and education. Education should be considered broadly to include all stages / levels of formal education, as well as non-formal and informal education.

Possible topics include but are not limited to:
• religion and identity among migrant students
• the « problematization » of religious minority students in host society schools
• representation of migrant’s religions in school curriculum
• religious literacy among education policy makers
• religious awareness among teachers and administrators
• religion as a form of cultural capital among migrant students
• religion and migrant teachers
• court decisions bearing on the religious identities and practices of migrant students

Please send abstracts to Bruce Collet by February 15, 2012.
Responses to submitted abstracts will be sent by April 2012. Full article submissions from invited papers will be due July 1, 2012. Papers invited for the special issue will undergo blind review procedures.

Reviews of relevant books are also encouraged.

ABTRACTS should be submitted according to the following format:

See the full program

Migration policies impact the economic sector: they shape the numbers and profile of foreigners entering a national economic market, their reception conditions, and they influence the needs and nature of an adequate diversity strategy. But the impact of economic actors on the making of migration policies is less certain:

What role can and do economic actors play in the elaboration of migration policies?

This question is at the core of this international conference, which examines what could be learned from a country, the United States, whose migration and integration policies strongly differ from those of France. Former State Senator and now Cook County Commissioner Jesus “Chuy” Garcia will address the role that economic actors can play in the making of migration policies. At the other end of the migration process, 3-star U.S. Army General Bostick will share with us his insight on the diversity recruitment strategies of one of the nation’s largest recruiters, whose policies in terms of diversity have often been groundbreaking.

 This conference will be held in English.

To register, please fill in the registration form on Ifri’s website here.

Registration is exclusively accepted through internet and will be confirmed by email.

Regstration will be closed on January, 11th, 2012.

Religion, Migration, Identities

European Social Science History Conference,

Glasgow, UK, 11-14 April 2012


Call for Abstracts


Religion, migration and the re-forming of identities in Southern Europe

Organizer: Alexandros Sakellariou

Countries like Greece, Italy, Portugal and Spain face an increase in their migrant populations during the last years. In their vast majority these migrants are of African and Asian origin and of course of non-Christian orientation with Muslims being considered as the main ‘threat’ for social cohesion. Many debates are taking place regarding the influence these migrants have in the host countries, especially as far as the national and/or religious identity of the inhabitants in concerned and in addition on the way their continuous coming should be confronted (e.g. by the construction of fences, the denial of political asylum, deportation, etc.).

This session seeks for papers mainly from these four countries, even though not exclusively, in order to have an overview and answer questions like the following: How migrants interact with the local population and what kind of reactions they face on issues regarding religious freedom? Is there any evidence that their presence influences the re-formation of the identity of the locals and how is this taking place? Why migrants are considered as a threat to the dominant religion of these societies and how local authorities, political and religious, react? Is this a real threat or an ideological and symbolical one? Which are the similarities and the differences between these societies? Papers focused on case studies are mostly welcomed as well as comparative studies between these countries or between two different historical periods of the same country, without of course excluding any other innovative proposal.

Send your paper title and an abstract of 250-300 words the most, your name, title, institutional affiliation and a brief CV in one of the following emails until March 31, 2011. The selected papers are going to be submitted for final acceptance to the Conference Organizers by May 1, 2011. After the approval of our session each participant will receive an email with further information. Please keep in mind that if the session is accepted all participants should submit their final paper to the organizer at least one month before the conference in order to be circulated for the discussion.
