Colonial/Racial Histories, National Narratives and Transnational Migration

The 20th Nordic Migration Research conference and the 17th ETMU conference will be organized jointly at the University of Helsinki, Finland, in August 12 ̶ 14, 2020, under the theme of Colonial/Racial Histories, National Narratives and Transnational Migration. The conference aims to provide a multidisciplinary platform for discussions in which the colonial/racial past and present (coloniality) are seen as relevant for how diasporic communities, racialized minorities and Indigenous Peoples are encountered and acted upon in the Nordic societies, as well as how these communities resist, question, resurgence, organize themselves and seek for alternative horizons beyond hierarchies.

We invite workshop proposals by November 18, 2019.
