Global Histories of Youth and Migration between Knowledge, Experience, and Everyday Life

Online workshop (by invitation), May 16-17, 2022

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.

Organized by Friederike Kind-Kovacs (Hannah-Arendt-Institute for Totalitarianism Research, Dresden), Sheer Ganor (University of Minnesota, Minneapolis), and Swen Steinberg (German Historical Institute Washington with its Pacific Regional Office at University of California Berkeley)
