New book series launched

On 12 January 2021, the new De Gruyter book series “Migrations in History” was launched at a virtual meeting of the American History Association.

The series focuses on migration in a historical context. We welcome proposals for monographs, edited volumes, conference proceedings and works in translation that investigate any aspect of migration in any time period and from any region of the world. We are particularly interested in submissions that explore migration from a comparative perspective, investigate the memory of migration and study migration as a process that unfolds across countries of departure, arrival and transit. While we welcome submissions from non-historians, we prioritise scholars who frame their work historically. The purpose of the series is to draw attention to the historical roots of current global patterns of migration and debates over their broader ramifications.

The editors of the series are Catherine Brice, Maddalena Marinari, Anna Mazurkiewicz and Machteld Venken. A large advisory board composed of internationally well-known migration scholars has also been set up.

The first volume, edited by Delphine Diaz and Sylvie Aprile, is entitled “Banished. Traveling the Roads of Nineteenth Century Europe”. It will appear in print later this year.
