Beschreibung der Veranstaltung

In Search of the Migrant Child: Global Histories of Youth and Migration between Knowledge, Experience, and Everyday Life, online workshop (by invitation), May 18-19, 2021, organized by PD Dr. Friederike Kind-Kovacs (Hannah-Arendt-Institute for Totalitarianism Research, Dresden), Dr. Sheer Ganor (University of Minnesota, Minneapolis), and Dr. Swen Steinberg (Carleton University, Ottawa / German Historical Institute Washington with its Pacific Regional Office at University of California Berkeley)

The topic of child migration occupies a critical role in contemporary debates about global mobilities, forced migration and the intensification of ethno-nationalist xenophobia. This first workshop in a series aims to amplify the historical dimensions of this phenomenon, bringing together a group of historians whose scholarship examines the nexus of childhood and migration from various perspectives and in different historical contexts. Adopting a transnational lens, the workshop opens a discussion that explores child and youth migration as a multifaceted phenomenon that is central to the historical analyses of migration more broadly
